Crazy Craft Bathtub Derby

The Grenada South Coast Yacht Club is calling all creative boat builders and adventurous types to enter the Crazy Craft Bathtub Derby, a boat racing event to be held on Grand Anse Beach on Sunday, March 14 as part of the 2010 Grenada Round-the-Island race event weekend. Unlike other water sport events, the Bathtub Derby allows crafty participants to design, build, and race their own human-powered vessels and compete for amazing cash prizes. Sure to be one of the major highlights of the Grenada Round-the-Island race weekend, this event encourages quirkiness and creativity mixed with humor and fun that spectators and sailors of all ages can enjoy. Awards will be given for fastest vessel for a 1-person team, 2-person team and 4-person team. Prizes will also be given for the most creative design.
