Regatta

The Musical Muskrat Festival’s

Mighty Maitland Regatta 2015

It’s back June 13th, 2015! The wildest ride on the Maitland!
Mattie the Muskrat once again challenges you to design, build and race boats made entirely of corrugated cardboard. Come and enjoy the fun as you challenge your friends, neighbours and corporate rivals in a wild race down the Mighty Maitland River.

For those of you who don’t have time to build a boat ahead of time, but who would like to race… don’t despair.  Try your luck with the X-Series build-on-site boats! You and your crew will be given two hours to build a boat using 3 pieces of cardboard, 3 rolls of duct tape, a box cutter, a pencil and yardstick. You bring your crew and we’ll provide the supplies!
