Kayak Contest

  • Waterfront, Mitchell Park 115 Front Street Greenport (map)

A perennial favorite and one of the most popular Festival events is the Kayak Contest that was started and organized by Otto Schoenstein almost 20 years ago.  Otto builts wooden Kayaks that are disassembled and teams of two must reassemble. They are launched by one member who paddles it out to a buoy, then returns to the beach so the other team member can repeat the course.  The first team to successfully complete the course is declared the winner.
