The Annual

Al Schlitz Beercan


--- October 18th ---

See our winners below!

Have your kids or your team started building your beercan sailboats yet? You have less than a week remaining before the competition.

Build those boats and meet us at the pool after the Chili Dinner.

No registration necessary.

Rules: The idea is to build 12 ‘liter’ racing yachts which will be raced in the swimming pool. Each yacht is to be constructed to the specifications below:

1. Hulls must be constructed of beer or soda cans only.

2. You may use up to twelve (12) twelve oz. cans for the hull.

3. Outriggers are considered part of the hull.

4. There are no restrictions to the hull size or configuration; see #2.

5. There are no restrictions on the size or shape of the sail plan.

6. There are no restrictions on the size, shape, or materials for the keels and rudders.

7. Boats must be powered only by sails affixed to the mast mounted on the hull.

8. No helium or other lighter than air gases can be used in construction.

9. Determination of compliance with these rules is subject to the sole discretion of the regatta organizers.
