The Digital Stewards Present The Red Hook Regatta!

When: Sep 25, 2016 1:00-5:00 pm

Where: Valentino Pier

Pioneer Works presents the second annual Red Hook Regatta, where 3D printed and homemade remote-controlled boats will take to the seas and race at Valentino Pier! The main event features 3D-printed, radio-controlled boats designed and built by members of the Red Hook Initiative’s Digital Stewards. Teams will compete to transport “cargo” (foam containers with metal plates) from “Stevedores” on the beach to designated “crane operators”, who will be receiving the cargo on the pier using fishing rods equipped with red magnetic hooks. Each cargo container picked up by a crane constitutes one point for that boat’s team, and the boat with the most points is the winner. This race is mayhem — the tides, the wind, the wakes from real container ships, and the technical challenge of the task make the race a must-see event. Join us for an afternoon fun for all ages. Leading up to the races will be music, carnival games, and a Wind-Powered Boat Race where children of all ages can build, decorate, and race their own paper boats in water tanks. SIGN UP TO ENTER A BOAT FOR THE MAIN EVENT! In the second annual Regatta, we introduce an entirely new category of competition: the General DIY Boat Race. DIY boats can be made out of any material - and we will provide electronics kits for all boats entered in the race! More information on the rules of registration found on the Pioneer Works website. Hurry, the deadline to register your boat and pick up an electronics kit is September 9, 2016. History of the Red Hook Regatta: The Red Hook Regatta was conceived as an initiative within the Pioneer Works Civic Journalism program and subsequently evolved into a major neighborhood event, drawing a diverse group of local participants racing 3D-printed and laser-cut boats along the Red Hook waterfront. The Regatta purposefully connects Red Hook’s rich history as a shipping port to new technologies like 3D modeling/printing, electronic circuitry, and digital game design. At its core, the Regatta embodies a form of storytelling and media production that connects a community to its history, environment, and culture as well as the current-day issues that it faces.
