Buoyancy might not be synonymous with floating on cardboard but by committing to the possibility of sustaining a soggy bottom and joining in the not necessarily waterproof cardboard boat regatta on the 3rd March, you will be committing to assist Tasmanian youth.
The Soggy Bottom Regatta is on Sunday 3rd March at Waverley Park Lake. There will be wet and dry races and if the inaugural event last year is any indication, there will be tons of fun, laughter and a few soggy bottoms.
All you need is some gaffer/duct tape, a cardboard box and an idea. Rotarians will be on hand to help you make your dream vessel a reality. Then the following Sunday you can test it out at the regatta. Gates open at 8:30 am and races by 10:30 am.
This year, the Youngtown Rotary Club is hoping to raise fund to support mental health programs for Tasmanian youth.
The Soggy Bottom Regatta is now in its third year and is guaranteed to be a fun day out for the whole family. You can test your running skills and agility on the dry course, charter a craft from the big fleets of dry boats on the day.
Tasmanian youth are the cornerstone of our community and the Youngtown Rotary Club is committed to supporting youngsters, especially those in need of mental health support. Funds raised will be directed towards Australian Rotary Health projects for Tasmanian Youth and prevention of youth suicide.
And this is why you need to get your bottom soggy on Sunday 3rd March at Waverley Lake Park, 6 Naroo Street, Waverley. Help is on hand at Harvest Launceston on Saturday where you will be advised on how best to construct out of cardboard and duct tape only a vessel for the regatta.
