Boat Building Competition (For Kids!)

 Think you have what it takes to become a master boat builder? Well here’s your chance to shine!

What you need to do-

Build your own ‘Cork300’ themed milk carton boat and send us a picture, simple as that.

Expert boat builder Mark Bushe has kindly agreed to oversee the judging process and has said he is particularly looking for “colour, creativity and something Cork300 related”!

Entries must be in by Wednesday 13th May and winners will be announced on Friday 15th May on the club site and Facebook. We also ask that if possible, boats are kept in good condition so we can display them in the club when it reopens. 

The only rules are-

  • The hull must consist of one single tetra pack carton
  • It must have a sail
  • It must have Cork300 somewhere on the boat
  • Email your pics to

Here’s some inspiration-

And if you really enjoy it, the Ilen company in Limerick are a great operation and they are running a similar competition here.

Best of luck!
