It’s that time of the year again when you start saving cardboard, get a team together, design and build a boat that can take you 100 yards (half that for kids)!  Besides all the fun building a boat, it’s fun to compete and some would say even more fun to cheer on the competitors!   

So, come to the Nanticoke River Marina in Blades at 11 a.m. on Aug. 5 (raindate Aug. 6) and join in the festivities, whether it’s enjoying a Delmarva Model Boat Club demonstration, visiting our partner displays, voting for People’s Choice Award, cheering on competitors or simply enjoying our grilled angus burgers and all-beef hot dogs! 

This is Reclaim Our River-Nanticoke’s seventh regatta and is the group’s only fundraiser to support our year’s worth of educational, recreational and restoration programs. Go to or call Nan Zamorski at 434-294-3736 for any questions.
