Submissions are being accepted for the 2021 Recycle Regatta until Wed Mar 31!
Hoist the sails! New England Science and Sailing (NESS), Educational Passages (EP), and the North American Marine Environment Protection Association (NAMEPA) are excited to host the second virtual Recycle Regatta!
Why should I enter the competition?
The Recycle Regatta is a fun, hands-on competition that students can participate in from the safety of their own home! Students will build small-scale, unmanned, model sailboats, test them, and calculate their speed. Challenge other students from around the world as you do your part for the environment by repurposing and recycling. Prizes will be awarded to our winners!
K-12 teachers are also encouraged to bring this experiential program to their classroom with our free resources and discounted online lessons.
here are 4 fleets this year. Each fleet will have two winners – Most Seaworthy (Fastest) and Most Creative. All fleets follow the same competition and submission guidelines. Winners will receive the title, award certificate, and a prize bag of sustainable materials and gifts from our sponsors.
