'Repurpose-It-Regatta' March 18 supports Cedar Key community

By The Staff

GAINESVILLE — Sailors with a knack for building their own seaworthy vessels will join in the fun March 18 in Cedar Key for the first “Workout on the Waterfront Repurpose-It-Regatta.”

Organizers challenge participants to make their vessels out of recyclable materials. 

“Pollution of our coasts and oceans with debris and other waste is a global problem, and we can all take steps to make sure harmful materials stay out of these ecosystems,” said Savanna Barry, Florida Sea Grant agent with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Nature Coast Biological Station. “We’re encouraging regatta boaters to use natural, biodegradable materials, such as paper and natural fabrics, when constructing their boat.”

The Repurpose-It-Regatta will begin at the intersection of G Street and Second Street at 10:30 a.m. Children must be accompanied by at least one adult. Boaters can win awards for fastest boat, most creative boat, pulling up the rear, and “pirate heat” — the fastest out of the boats that, while creative, don’t pass inspection at check-in.
