As this event is heavily focused on recycling, the main requirement for those participating in the recyclable regatta is for all boats to be made of at least 80% recycled materials. The execution of this is simply based on creativity and ingenuity. Participants are encouraged to find an innovative and resourceful way to transform recyclable materials into a fully functional watercraft for the regatta.
The Lighthouse Marina Resort In cooperation with Philippine Dragon Boat Federation and UP Mountaineering are building two boats made entirely of recyclable materials. One of the main materials of the boat are slippers that Team Lighthouse found in Capones Island in San Antonio, Zambales last April 27, 2012 during a coast cleanup drive in celebration of the recent Earth Day which is also in line with The Lighthouse’s “Save Capones Island” campaign.
In this race, participants must paddle their recycled watercrafts over a 200-meter course on the seafront of The Lighthouse Marina Resort in Subic. This match is open to teams of two (either under the “Mens” or “Mixed” categories), of all ages and professions, so everyone is encouraged to join. Cash prizes and Columbia gift certificates await the winners.
The Columbia Recyclable Regatta will be held on May 13 and May 19, 2012 with the first leg at The Lighthouse Resort, Subic Bay Freeport Zone and the second at Cebu City respectively. Registration fee is P2,500 inclusive of rash guard.
