Supplies are limited, but the creativity is endless at Schooner Wharf Bar on Sunday, May 29 for the 20th Annual Schooner Wharf Minimal Regatta.

Each 6 member team must build a boat seaworthy enough to stay afloat for the entire race course in the Key West Bight in front of Schooner Wharf. The catch---the boats are made of plywood, fasteners, duct tape, and 2' x 4's.

Minimal Regatta Construction Rules:
1. One sheet of 4' x 8' x 1/4" plywood
2. Two 2"x 4" 8'
3. One pound of fasteners
4. One roll of 2" x 60 yard duct tape
5. No caulking or adhesives - Epoxy paint is permitted
6. Painting of boats is optional

Construction kits can be bought at co-sponsor Manley de Boer on Eaton Street at a “minimal” price.

There are two categories of “Minimal Vessels” -- Kayak/Canoe Design & Open Design. Competitors will win prizes in each design group for Fastest - 1st & 2nd Place. Other prizes are awarded for the Most Creative Design - 1st & 2nd Place, Best Paint Job, Best Costumed Entry, Sportsmanship Award, and Sinker Award.

Whether you're a participant or a spectator, it’s a memorable Memorial Day weekend with Captain Morgan & Corona drink specials, live music with Michael McCloud & Friends from noon till 5pm and Marty Stonely, George Victory & Masai from 6:30 till 11:00pm. Enjoy a great Memorial Day BBQ and lots of laughs at the craziest regatta you've ever seen.
