11th Annual Conor Nelson Memorial Raingutter Regatta

Date:                       Saturday, October 28th

Time:                              10:00AM – 12:00PM

Location:                North Cary Park at the Picnic Shelter

                                1100 Norwell Blvd, Cary NC 27513


Registration starts at 9:30AM and ends at 10:00AM for all Scouts

There is not a required kit the Scout has to use.  You may use the Raingutter Regatta Boat kit from the Scout Shop, but you are free (and encouraged!) to use/re-use common materials to create a unique racing boat.  Milk jugs, Styrofoam, and sponges have all been used in the past.  Be creative!

(The Scout Store also sells another sailboat kit that does not meet the size requirements listed below.  If you decide to use a kit other than the Raingutter Regatta Sailboat kit, make sure your boat meets the size requirements listed below.)


Classes:        Tiger  -  Wolf  -  Bear  -  Webelos   (no combined ranks)

Categories:        Beauty/Craftsmanship  -  Unique Design  -  Speed


1st, 2nd, and 3rd places will be awarded medals for each class in each category, assuming enough Scouts attend to fill all places.  A Scout may only receive one medal.  This may mean that the Scout will have to make a choice.

Questions:  Contact our Derby-master, Brian Rudy, bsrudy@yahoo.com
