On your marks for la­goon race day

Whitsunday Times - - REEF FESTIVAL -

RAC­ERS, on your marks –it’s al­most time to let loose the re­cy­clable rafts.

The Air­lie Beach La­goon will be a riot of colour, crafts and laughs this Sun­day for the Whit­sun­day Times La­goon Race Day, fea­tur­ing the Re­cy­clable Re­gatta.

The re­gatta gets un­der way at 10am, so bring your cam­era, as there’s sure to be more than a few mo­ments worth cap­tur­ing.

Com­peti­tors will start from the shore and race around the mark­ers and back to the shore, where there will be a mad dash up to the fin­ish line.

The fun doesn’t end there, ei­ther, with the Great In­flat­able Races keep­ing the wa­ter fun flow­ing.

So bring your pool ponies, in­flat­able rings and the clas­sic pool noo­dle to join in on the may­hem.

If get­ting wet isn’t part of your game plan, the Pa­per Boat Races could be per­fect for you.

Just cre­ate your craft and set it loose across the la­goon.
