Students compete in boatbuilding regatta


Students from high schools, technical schools and middle schools took on the challenge of building a boat in a day at the 14th annual Plywood Regatta held last Saturday in Dania Beach, Fla.

The students comprised 31 teams and built boats with names such as Sushi Bar, One Love, Reef Dogs and Platinum Sharks, with equally interesting paint jobs for the Sunday races.

The event is sponsored each year by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida and is supported by a number of recreational marine industry and local businesses to help introduce young people to careers in the marine industry and to recreational boating.
