On Saturday, March 12th, the Brick came alive for the 23rd Annual Water Spittoon Race & Nautical Ball.  One hundred and eleven boats entered in all – with 73 boats filling out the wood category (other categories included paper, plastic, soap and experimental). The races kicked off at 1pm and continued into the early evening.  Though competition was fierce and beer was flowing, good sportsmanship was a trait shared by all – ensuring that everyone had a great time regardless of how their boats were performing.  A brief video of the event is available below:

  1. […] All boats may be waterproofed but must not exceed 3” long, 1 ½” wide and 3” in height.  There are no mechanical or other means of propulsion allowed except in the “Experimental Class”. There is a $10 entry fee per boat in all classes except for wood.  The wood category is $5 per boat because it is run in a single elimination format until it gets down to the final four, at which time the races turn to double elimination.  All other classes are double elimination from start to finish.  Visit the Brick or the Brick’s website to ensure you have the most up to date information and rules, and check out past videos to get a sense of what it’s all about – 2012, 2011.
