Duck Tape Regatta (DTR) participants are given four hours to create a "boat" out of 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 adrenaline and cheering of the crowd rivals any major NASCAR, Derby or track race. It is pure excitement!
Surprisingly enough, the most amazing thing about the Duck Tape Regatta is not the construction of these boats, but the fact that every cent collected through sign-up fees, food, entertainment, and generous donations is given to the Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters to ensure the best health care for the children of Hampton Roads, Virginia.
For all those who have attended the DTR we thank you and for those who are making their plans for this year, the fun is yet to come! This year's Regatta will be the best yet.
