This Year’s Non-Mariners Race Set For July 31

July 18, 2016

Looking for something silly and wacky  to do to wrap up Cup Match this year? If so, the organisers of the NonMariners race are inviting you to head on down to Sandys Boat Club on Sunday, July 31st.

A spokesperson said, “The 44th NonMariners Race will kick off in Mangrove Bay just before noon this year, with the Non-Calypso Pipe Band leading the NonCommittee in parade to Mangrove Bay Beach to observe the construction of this year’s NonCraft. From political satire to outrageous costume, there is something to see all the way to the official NonPrizegiving just before 6.

“If you are more into doing than watching, why not get some friends together and come up with your own NonCraft? The rules are pretty easy – if it shouldn’t be floating as a single unit then it probably is a NonCraft. For more details, check out Sandys Boat Club’s Facebook page or our website .

“Departures from tradition include reversing the direction of the NonParade and starting it a little earlier, the addition of a few more NonEvents at the dock – don’t worry kids, there still is a NonNoodle race, one for boys and one for girls – and the announcement of a NonColours art competition for each future NonEvent.

“While hanging out at the raft up is lots of fun, you should make sure to come visit the actual scene and enjoy the antics of the NonCommittee and those who have been caught up in the chaos and friendly mayhem that make this event so special.

“Admission at the Sandys Boat Club is $5 for adults and $2 under 18 – you must be wearing a wristband to purchase beverages. Remember your ID!”

    My favourite event of the year. SEPs in skimpy bikinis and swimwear everywhere! I’ve had my spot taped off near the rock warning marker since May 24th to ensure I have a prime location to anchor off my kayak and be apart of the action. I’ll be giving free kayak rides and free booze to all the SEPs during this wonderful event. Hopefully my good friend, Commodore JB of BBIRYC, is not too busy with baby stuff and can make an appearance at Non-Mariners. He did invent everything to do with mariner, boating and yachting. I know he wil be busy these days teaching his offspring the basics of yachting so that the fruit of his lions can circumnavigate the globe at a younger age than he did. N.B. New will be at Non Mariners ensuring people do not litter and destroy the ocean habitat.

    Hope you did not put your tape over my spot. I spray painted the water last weekend to mark it.
