The derby is for human powered watercraft only (not from shore or a motor boat) such as kayak, canoe, row or belly boat etc. There will be hidden weight prizes, largest fish and many other categories, which will insure that anyone who enters the derby will end up with a prize at the end of the day ....... even if you get skunked!
