If you love a challenge, have a sense of adventure, and want to create awareness for the important cause of recycling then join us in the Whatever Floats Your boat event!

Companies and schools are invited to form teams and compete in building a boat completely from recyclable materials in the design of a wild animal. But it doesn’t end there! The boat also needs to be able to float with the team members in it across the Festival Marina.

Taking part
• Register your team of four from your school/company through the application form (the entry fee is 7000 AED)
• Build a boat made out of recycled materials in the design of a wild animal and brand it with your company name and logo (you have until midnight of November 20th to do this)
• Parade your boat with glory on the day of the event (November 22nd) and float it across the Festival Marina Mall canal to compete with others in your division (school or corporation)
The event is fully committed to recycling and this year’s race will raise funds to support EWS-WWF species conservation project.

Judging Criteria
The overall winner of each division (corporation or school) will be determined by a combination of the following judging criteria (in no particular order):
(a)First boat to cross the finish line
(b)Most creative boat design including type of recyclable materials used
(c)Best crew costume

Help protect our precious wildlife!
This year’s race will raise funds to support EWS-WWF species conservation projects.
In the last 20 years, an estimated 30% of species population has declined worldwide. This is further affected by illegal wildlife trafficking, which puts these iconic species at an even greater risk. EWS-WWF has been driving important research, education, awareness and conservation programmes to conserve our natural environment and protect endangered species.
