Wild & Wonderful Whale Regatta

Wild & Wonderful Whale Regatta

The Wild & Wonderful Whale Regatta is like the "rubber ducky" races that take place in many parts of the country, except we have little rubber whales doing the racing and you can have one or more whales racing in your name on February 10, 2018.

Online entries received up to midnight on Wednesday, February 7, 2018 will be accepted.

All airfares are roundtrip and there are other great prizes to be awarded for second and third place winners.
