Beer Can Regatta

The Beer Can Regatta is an annual event at Mindil Beach organized by the Lions Club of Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia. The participating boats are all made of beer or soda cans! The highlight of this year's regatta, held Sunday, was the appearance of Extravacans, an enormous motor-powered boat constructed of 30,000 cans! A new category was created for the much bigger "superboat," which it won as the only entry. In the main race, called The Battle of Minsdil, the winner was The Flying Posties. There were other races and competitions in various categories. As you can see here, it is customary to slow down one's competition by any means available. Link  -via Arbroath
