As anyone who was there knows, this year’s KUAC Red Green Regatta will go down in history as the Regatta that did not launch! High water river conditions forced a “safety first” grounding of the annual flotilla-of-fun. But those floats and spectators that did come out were not disappointed by the ingenuity, spirit, and of course duct tape. Special thanks to the sponsors, volunteers and participants who made it all possible! See all the photos and award winners HERE.
We need your help! We have plenty of the now collectable 2014 RGR shirts available here at the station because of the “grounded” Regatta. Give us a call at 474-7491 to reserve yours today or visit HERE. See you next year, on the water!
