Anything That Floats Regatta Race

211 views 4 days ago
Trashy items like PVC, buckets, pool noodles, plastic wrap, lawn furniture or cardboard can be bound together as "hulls" during the Anything That Floats regatta race every August in Key Largo.

Each third Saturday of August, this northernmost territory of the Florida Keys' Conch Republic, the island nation reputed for wonderful waterside stunts, tasks resourceful crews of two, four or more people to reuse, recycle and regenerate floatable items found around the house to construct their boats.

High-spirited teams can employ oars, paddles or even hoist old T-shirts as sails to propel their vessel. Obvious offenders that, if used, can disqualify a team include motors, foam, floats, rafts or pool toys.

The 2014 race is set for Aug. 16. Show less
