2022 Recycle Regatta

New England Science & Sailing (NESS), NAMEPA, and Educational Passages are hosting the 2022 Recycle Regatta! The Recycle Regatta is a competition open to students K-12, to create a model boat out of entirely recycled materials. Then, race your boat while learning about engineering, mathematics, sailing, buoyancy, and stewardship! It's a super fun way to get practice zero-waste methods while gaining new insight into the world of vessel operation. 

Entry forms will be available starting on February 15th, but you can start planning and designing your vessel now!
