Leave it to the Aussie’s to come up with a sport like this…
BEER CAN REGATTA: lt's the ultimate Sunday session.. Did you head down?Posted by 9 News Darwin on Sunday, July 9, 2017
This is Darwin’s Beer Can Regatta. It’s a competition in which boats constructed of aluminum beer cans battle each other on the shores of Mindil Beach, in Australia.
The competition saw hundreds of competitors, and their homemade beer can vessels, take to the waters in hopes of being named king/queen of the seas! (or something like that)
You can compete in the main event, the “Battle of Mindil”. It’s a treasure hunt that sees competitors trying to find hidden treasure lurking somewhere underwater, and bring it back to water without being “pirated,” but there are more traditional races as well.
Better start saving up those empties!
