Rock the Boat Regatta

Coconut Telegraph

Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County hosted the 2nd Annual Rock the Boat Regatta with Intertape Polymer Group (IPG) and Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office on July 20, at the Lee Wetherington Boys & Girls Club pool. Fourteen teams made up of Lee Wetherington Boys & Girls Club members, as well as, representatives from IPG and Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, raced homemade boats of all shapes and sizes. Each boat was constructed at the Lee Wetherington Boys & Girls Club two weeks prior to the event using only cardboard and a variety of IPG’s advanced tape products. The event featured three brackets including the 9-12-year-olds, teens and CEOs. IPG’s President Greg Yull and their boat named Gator Done took first place in the CEO race while Bill Sadlo, President/CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Sarasota County, took second with his Hulk-themed boat. Sheriff Tom Knight and his vessel inspired by their Marine Unit placed third.
