A sailboat has been set up on a hinged platform, over the Shipyard Basin and supported by the ice. When the ice melts sufficiently to allow the support to sink through the ice, the platform will drop and the boat will be launched.
How it works:
This is a skill testing contest where the participant guesses the day that the Optimist sail boat “launches” from the platform into the harbour.
The winner(s) of the contest will receive 1st place $500, 2nd place $250 of the net proceeds from ticket sales. $500 donation will be also donated to the Youth Sailing Club.
