Cardboard Boat regatta
Launched in 2018 the Seawork Cardboard Boat Regatta will return to the 2019 exhibition. Entrants will be racing for the Speed@Seawork Award for Fastest Boat, the Best Bedecked Boat and the Soggy Bottom Award.
The charity Atlantic Pacific International Rescue Boat Project will be managing on-water safety at the event. It is a not-for-profit NGO with a simple purpose - to provide lifeboats where there are none.
The winning companies may choose to donate any prize money won directly to the Atlantic Pacific project or nominate a maritime charity of their choice.
Seawork organisers are encouraging companies to challenge each other in the Cardboard Boat Regatta and are looking forward to entries from intrepid vessel builders and designers with some ingenious inventions.
