The Delaware Center for the Inland Bays had its first Rock and Row Recycling Regatta June 19 in Rehoboth Bay. Each craft had to be made of recycled materials or materials that could be recycled after the races.

The following prizes were handed out: Overfall Rock Star for fastest time – Ad Boat; She's a Beaut Award – Bethany Blues; Sussex Sweetheart Award – 16 Mile Brewery; Titanic Award (most spectacular sinking) – Mercantile Processing; and Judge's Choice Award – Inclined.

The boat looks good, but it also takes coordination to make it go. The Bethany Blues team of Daniel Helfner and Jason Hollingsworth have a little trouble getting their oars to row in the same direction. (Photo by: Ron MacArthur)
