Fast & Furious Boat Building & Race

Interested in competing?

This is one of the most popular events of the Festival. Teams of two participate in a race against time and design. Each team has four hours to build a boat which they hope will carry them through the Fast and Furious Sea Trials.

The boat is constructed of plywood, some spruce lumber and lots of caulking. The boat must be of their own design and must be sailed for half the race and paddled for the other half. Teams are recognized for creativity, spirit, costumes and more, so the competitors tend to go overboard even before the boats hit the water!

The boatbuilders are always at work, so stop by the Fast and Furious Boatbuilding Tent and check out their creations as they take shape. And don't miss the race itself on Sunday.
