Sea Pirate Campground’s
Third Annual Cardboard Duct Tape Boat Regatta
August 2, 2014

Official Rules
The only materials to use for your boat: Cardboard and duct tape.

The Specifics:
1. Only cardboard or corrugated cardboard may be used.
2. Only duct tape may be used on the cardboard. Wax, silicone, fiber glass resins, epoxy, glues, nails, and screws are prohibited. Our goal is to keep this event as “eco-friendly” as possible!
3. Decorations may be made of any material but cannot help keep the boat together or aloft.
4. Only oars, paddles, or wind may be used to propel the boat. Oars, paddles, and sails may be made out of any material. Paddles will be provided from the camp if needed.
5. Each boat must have at least 2 team members.
6. All participants must wear personal flotation devices (PFDs) throughout the duration of the race. Passengers in your boat must not be enclosed above their shoulders. All passengers must be visible while the boat is in the water. During competition, crew must be IN the boat, not towing it, holding it between their legs, swimming, or allowing life jackets to provide the flotation of the vessel.
7. Each team must remove their entire boat and any boat remains from the water when the race is finished. A receptacle for trash will be provided.

There will be a committee that will serve as the “Rules and Safety Committee”.
If any judge has reason to believe the boat is made of prohibited materials, the team will be asked to prove otherwise. Any boat deemed “unsafe” will not be allowed to enter the race.
Competitor’s positions will be announced at the Camp Pond.
