The Cardboard Boat Regatta sponsored by Moteurs Baudouin returned for 2019. Intrepid mariners took to the water in a race with an international flavour.
This year there was a requirement to register the vessel under an International Flag of State in accordance with ISVO (International Soggy Vessel Organisation) laws. Flags can be of any nationality or more controversially could be a Flag of Convenience. The vessel should then wear the flag at all times during the Regatta and all efforts should be made during the design phase to adorn the vessel with an essence of the Flag of Choice
Entrants raced for the Speed@Seawork Award for Fastest Boat, the Best Bedecked Boat and the Soggy Bottom Award.
