Compass Project is proud to announce The Compass Project Cardboard Boat Regatta and Waterfront Festival. The day-long event, scheduled for July 19, 2014, will feature cardboard boat building and racing, live music, food trucks and a Rowgatta, and will raise awareness of and funds for Compass Project’s work with at-risk youth.
The day will start with cardboard boat construction. Teams will have approximately three hours to construct and decorate their boats before launching their creations and navigating a short course. Participants will learn, have fun and most definitely get wet!
In the afternoon, rowers and paddlers will compete further off shore in an open Rowgatta. Any seaworthy, human-powered vessel is welcome to participate.
Throughout the day live music will be on hand courtesy of The Faulkingham Project and Jerks of Grass.
