Raingutter Regatta 2012

Post date: Sep 26, 2012 2:18:58 PM

The 2012 Pack 815 Raingutter Regatta will be Saturday, October 6th outside the Murdock Cafeteria. By now, everyone should have received their boat kits from the Den Leaders. If you have not, contact your Den Leader or myself and we will make sure you have one. For help making your boat, Google ‘Raingutter Regatta’ for tips and tricks, or check out this Boys' Life article. See the pack rules .pdf file attached below to make sure your boat is compliant. NOTE - online you may see various multi-hull designs, but for our competition, the boat hull must be one piece. You cannot use a catamaran or a trimaran (multi-hull) style or an outrigger to stabilize your boat.

This year’s theme is International Spirit. You make pick any country for your boat. Paint and decorate the boat to show off this country. Feel free to add ornaments if needed to show off the country's spirit, past times, or history.

All boats must be checked-in and inspected. Once boats have passed inspection, they will be held by the Raingutter Regatta Committee until race time and can no longer be modified. Check-in location is the covered area outside the Murdock cafeteria. There will be two windows for this:

    • Friday, October 5th 7:00 – 8:00 PM

    • Saturday, October 6th, 8:00 – 9:00 AM

The Flag Ceremony will start promptly at 9:00 AM on Saturday morning and races will start immediately afterwards. Volunteers will be needed to help with setup and running the event. If you are able to volunteer for this event, please attend the Pack Committee meeting at the Murdock Cafeteria on Tuesday, Oct 2, 7:00 - 8:15 PM to help with the final plans.

I am looking forward to a great Regatta!
