6th Annual Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta

2017 Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta was "Irma-rupted!

We were all ready for the race.  Until Hurricane Irma reared her head with other ideas, forcing us to cancel this year's regatta.  Your efforts in boat building were not in vain as the 2018 Regatta will be on April 21, 2018.

It’s time once again for you to challenge your friends, your family, and your colleagues to build boats out of stuff that any normal person would take to the dump and enter them in the Whatever Floats Your Boat Regatta at the Florida State University Coastal and Marine Laboratory. Boats can be as artistic or as whacky as you want to make them. Just build ‘em and they will float . . . more or less.

We have 2 categories: sailing and non-sailing. Think you're up for the challenge? Grab your crew, and start designing your vessel. Just remember to select your race category upon registration.

You landlubbers will be busy ashore cheering on the captains and crews of these outrageously constructed vessels as they sail, row, or scull around the course, topple over, or slowly sink into Apalachee Bay. Watch the Regatta from various shoreline vantage points around the lab on either side of the boat basin. Enjoy good food, have loads of fun, all while learning about recycling and how to reduce the impact of plastics in our marine environments.
