The only kinds of boats allowed in this race were made of duct tape and plywood.

The Schooner Wharf Minimal Regatta took place in Key West, Florida, over Memorial Day Weekend.

Participants were only allowed to use one 4-by-8-foot sheet of plywood, two 8-foot two-by-fours and a pound of fasteners. Teams were able to paint their boats, but couldn’t use caulk seams.

As you can imagine, things got a little wet.

Silly costumes were encouraged — people dressed up as Tiki huts, park rangers and the Cat in the Hat.

At the end of it all, there were prizes, including for most creative, best costume and fastest boat.

There was also the dreaded sinker, given to the teams that weren’t able to stay above water.
