The Duct Tape Regatta takes to the water later this month. The Swampscott Rotary initiative is also Bob Erbetta’s baby. He’s building a boat and will need some strong arms – still looking for strong/light crew members and alternates with some kayaking experience, if possible. The RCOMH vessel is pretty well completed and the Regatta is scheduled for Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 11:00, departing from Fisherman’s Beach in Swampscott.
All boats must be home made with PVC pipe, rope, duct tape, recyclable bottles and cardboard, and be crewed by four persons. Each crew must raise $400 for a clean water project. Application deadline is June 14th. Click here to download   application form and regulations. Speak with Bob at the Club Meeting if you would like to join his crew.
Thank you John Williams and Judith Black for your contribution to Scuttlebutt.
