Dania Beach Marina
The Plywood Regatta is a two-day event where middle, high school and college students will attempt to build sea-worthy vessels on April 11 using simple hand-tools and only the supplied materials of plywood, 3M 5200 fast cure caulk and zip ties.
On Sunday, April 12, come watch as the students compete in a fun-filled and friendly rivalry when the finished boats line up and race in a series of heats to determine which boats actually are seaworthy and which boats exude that sinking feeling!
All proceeds from the Plywood Regatta, organized by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, benefit South Florida’s marine industry education programs and the Plywood Regatta Scholarship Fund.
The aim of these programs is to encourage students to pursue careers in the marine trades, maintaining South Florida’s talent cluster as the global leader for service in the recreational and yachting segments of the marine industry.
