Annual De Soto Bottle Regatta Returns Saturday

Published Wednesday, April 9, 2014 12:03 am

BRADENTON – The wet, wacky and wild De Soto Heritage Festival Bottle Boat Regatta is back and as usual, the event is packed full of fun. The regatta will once again be held on the South side of the Palma Sola Causeway. Bring the family out to see teams compete in home made boats of all shapes, sizes and themes!

Witness various teams of friends, co-workers and children who have spent countless hours fabricating an array of exotic-looking boats that float on hundreds of plastic bottles!

 

Teams row the bottle boats with paddles to get from the start to finish line. Teams will compete for a wide range of awards from fastest boat to best dressed crewe and more! It’s sure to be fun for all.

 

The vent will take place from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Admission is free. The Regatta is sponsored by Freedom Boat Club.
