What is a Regatta?

Basically, a regatta is a series of boat races. So, a "recycled regatta" would be boat races featuring boats made from 100% recycled materials.

In this instance, said boats will be big enough to hold people while on the water.

When and where is the Recycled Regatta?

The event will take place at Johnson Park, at Fort Phantom Lake, on June 18th from 10 am until (approximately) 4 pm.

Boat drop will be between 9:30 am and 10:30 am followed by judging of dry boats from 10:30 am until 11:15 am. The actual heat races, on the water, will begin at 11:30 am.

What age groups can participate?

The Recycled Regatta is open to everyone, including children, adults, and groups.

How much does it cost to enter the event?

The registration fee has been waived by Global Samaritan Resources. At checkout, simply use this code: EricaSaid to have the fee waived.

The deadline to enter the Recycled Regatta is Saturday, April 30th, so get your boats and teams ready for an event unlike any other we've seen here in the Big Country.

So, if you think you can build a water-worthy boat out of recycled materials, then get ready to race. This will be an absolute blast that no one wants to miss.

By the way, the Johnson Park area, of Fort Phantom Lake, is pretty calm water. So don't worry about having to race across the turbulent waters of Fort Phantom on a windy day.
