Bathtub Race – Info, Rules, Instructions
Bathtub Races Application & 2015 Waiver
Bathtub races are races between boats that are designed to tickle the funny bone in all of us. These sea worthy vessels may be either created or manufactured, and the most critical aspect of each vessel is that it be amusing!
One race will be held for hand made/decorated “boats”. The idea behind this is that the handmade/decorated boats can be made out of anything, like bathtubs, that can float, including handmade boats that look like boats but are decorated in wacky, fun outrageous ways. The theme should also be incorporated in the decoration/design.
The general idea is to promote silliness and spirit in a safe and madcap way with boats that resemble typically non-floating objects, the most obvious being a bathtub.
The races between the entrants will determine the winner in the race category.
