Description

Beer is probably the greatest of all humankind's inventions but, due to its popularity, it has caused the planet a serious problem: what to do with all the used beer cans. Luckily, the permanently drunk and exceptionally clever folk of Darwin came up with a solution in 1974: make boats out of the used beer cans and sail them on a sea in a beer can regatta. Many of the boats are amazing to behold, whilst others were clearly built built after one too many cans and sink to the delight of spectators. If you like beer, boats or seeing how far you can throw your flip-flops this events is not to be missed.
