April Tools Wooden Boat Challenge

April 29 @ 10:00 am

This family-friendly spring event draws teams from the Sunshine Coast, the Vancouver area, the Lower Mainland and beyond. Teams of four must create a boat in 3 hours from the materials provided, with only 1 hour to figure out how to do it. The type of craft and the constraints of the race change each year, and therein lies the fun! Plus, all must be accomplished using only hand tools and battery-powered screw guns.

The boatbuilding is followed by races that may or may not end with all participants still afloat!!

Kids activities include min boatbuilding and floating them in our little pool. Various other craft activities also keep kids entertained. All kids’ activities are free and the high school boatbuilding materials are donated so they can participate at no cost.
