Plywood Cup Challenge

  • Kaneohe Yacht Club 44-503 Kaneohe Bay Drive Kaneohe, HI, 96744 United States (map)

A benefit for UCPA of Hawaii

United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaii and the Kaneohe Yacht Club, in conjunction with the Pacific Cup Race, are offering the ultimate challenge for the racing enthusiast.  The challenge is to build a boat of your own design, with provided materials, and race it against the clock and your fellow participants; all for the benefit of the local programs of United Cerebral Palsy.

The event is organized into teams and each team is supplied the same materials and tools.  Each team is allowed ten members and construction time from start to finish is just two hours.  Race planning and tactics are allowed one hour and the race follows immediately on a triangle course.

The race has been held for the past twenty-seven (27) years and design technology improves each year.  The number of boats that actually float has increased greatly and the percentage of finishers is truly impressive, photo opportunities abound.
 
Entrants can participate by either sponsoring a team or forming their own crews to challenge other entries.  Space is limited to twenty teams and all entry fees are tax deductible.
