The Duck Tape Regatta is an exhilarating fund-raiser organized to benefit the Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters, in years past this event has raised more than $150,000! The members of The King's Daughters' Southern Vines Circle are coordinating this year's 10th annual Duck Tape Regatta and would like to invite YOU to participate! The event takes place Saturday, August 10, 2013, at the Willoughby Harbor - a VMG Marina on 1525 Bayville Street in Norfolk, Virginia.
How does it work? DTR participants/teams are given four hours to create a "boat" out of a kit that contains a sheet of plywood, two 2x4s, a roll of duct tape, and a pound of screws. The boats are then manned and launched into a race for seaworthiness and speed. The heart pumping adrenaline and cheering of the crowd rivals that of any NASCAR, Derby or Olympic race! The anticipation is pure excitement!
Participating in such a thrilling event is only part of the Duck Tape Regatta experience. All of the proceeds from sign-up fees, food sales, sponsorships and generous donations are given to the Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters. Your participation and the presents of your family and friends help to ensure the best health care for the children of Hampton Roads, Virginia.
We look forward to seeing our devoted teams from years past and the inspired faces of newcomers. Let's make this year the best yet! What are you waiting for sign up now!
