Survival Regatta:

Patrols will build a CORACLE to compete in a race around markers in the Camp Hart pond.  A coracle is a small, lightweight boat made by forming brush or branches into a torus or toroid
and then covering it in with oiled hides or a tarp.

We will build our coracle(s) in the early afternoon and race them before dinner.  We need to bring
  • PFD's for every crew member on the water (start getting your life jackets together now!)
  • DRY CLOTHES and TOWELS (it's very likely you'll get wet!)
