Welcome to the Summerland Ogopogo Bathtub Race
Presented by Summerland Chamber of Commerce, Summerland Yacht Club and Summerland Rotary
SUN, WATER, BEACHES AND BATHTUB RACES!
When it gets choppy, skippers need to be on their toes!
The Ogopogo Bathtub Race started in 2015 as a fundraiser for the Penticton Regional Hospital, and was a great success, raising $126,000.00. Now the race moves on to its next incarnation, which places more emphasis on racing, although a fundraising aspect continues.
The short circuit course guarantees lots of viewing opportunities, so bring your cameras!
On this site, you can register a tub in the race, volunteer, and get detailed information on the event. This is a perfect opportunity for families, clubs, associations and companies to get together and build and race an entry on beautiful Okanagan Lake! No entry fee!
Back in 1910, Summerland had its apple-crate racing. For some reason, it looks like long socks and shoes were mandatory.
