It was a fantastic event.
So much fun! A huge crowd appeared and there was laughter all afternoon. Thank you to everyone who participated and came along to watch. The beach was full and so was the pier. 40 boats entered and there were 101 paddlers.

Thank you to all those hard working Brighton North Rotarians who organised the event. Thank you to the 1st/14th Brighton Sea Scout Leaders who worked hard to keep the boats floating. 

Thank you to our sponsors, our Principle Sponsor Community Bank Highett as well as Royal Brighton Yacht Club, Bayside City Council, Nick Johnstone Real Estate, Porsche Brighton and Monjon.

Prize winners will receive their awards next week as we have now finished the paper work.

The committee are busy compiling the photos into a video. It will appear on this page soon. We are keen to run the event again next year and hope you are too!  When we have a date, we will display it on this page. 

The total funds raised is still being tallied. Stay tuned for this exciting news!  Donations are still welcome.

WHAT is the Recycle Regatta?

This event centres around a boat race that challenges individuals and teams to construct boats using recyclable materials -cardboard, recyclable plastic bottles etc.

Race participants will need to get into their homemade boats and paddle across the Royal Brighton Yacht Club harbour on the day of the event.

Prizes totalling $1500 will be awarded in different categories.

Community members are invited to attend as boat-builders or spectators.

WHY participate?

The Recycle Regatta is a fun and creative activity to support our charities whether you’re a master boat builder or prefer to stay on land. The Recycle Regatta is meant to inspire boat teams to work together, employing creativity and ingenuity, to get their boat to cross the finish line, and land lovers will be able to cheer on their favourite boat from the shore.

The event is truly meant to bring us all together around a common cause and participating in the day is sure to leave you feeling inspired.

What better way to end the summer!

WHERE will the Recycle Regatta take place?
