Windsor Plywood donated materials to the annual Small Talk Plywood Cup held on June 18th, 2016. Dozens of amateur boat builders gathered at Granville Island on Saturday afternoon to race in the fundraising event.

Seven teams of four had 90 minutes to build a single-person boat from plywood to travel across approximately 300 metres of False Creek as part of the fundraiser for Small Talk B.C., a language therapy centre for young children.

In addition to time constraints, the teams had limited tools to build their boats.

They were supplied with:

  • two large sheets of plywood
  • a rod of lumber
  • one roll of duct tape
  • one bag of nails
  • a small handsaw
  • a hammer
  • yardstick
  • a safety cutter
  • one pencil

The next race takes place on June 17th, 2017
