Today Is Race Day!
Plywood Regatta 2016 Celebrates 20th Anniversary

It's that time of year again! The Marine Industries Association of South Florida's Plywood Regatta is underway this weekend at Dania Beach Marina. 

What is the Plywood Regatta, you ask?
A maximum of 40 teams of middle school, high school and marine technical school students attempt to build sea-worthy vessels on Saturday, April 9 using simple hand-tools and only the supplied materials of plywood, 3M 5200 fast cure caulk and zip ties. 
Once the boats are complete students paint and decorate their boats. On Sunday, April 10, participants compete in a fun-filled and friendly rivalry when the finished, decorated boats line up and race in a series of heats to determine an event champion. 
All Plywood Regatta proceeds benefit South Florida’s marine industry education programs and the Plywood Regatta Scholarship Fund. The aim of these programs is to encourage marine education and develop students’ interest in the marine industry.
This year, Stanley Yacht Services is proud to sponsor a team of delightful 7th graders from New River Middle School, race name: Tiger Sharks. With Capt Ben as their mentor, they have constructed the fine vessel you see below.
