Organizers schedule date for fools’ regatta
Save the date for the 35th annual Fools’ Rule Regatta that will take place at the East Ferry beach on Aug. 11. Entrants are allowed two hours to construct a sailing craft on the beach, and the vessels must be constructed of nonmarine items. The craft may be preconstructed, but must be disassembled and built again on the beach. Vessels compete for first, second and third place in each of the five classes. Classes are determined by the number of participants on each vessel: one, two, three, four, and unlimited.
