Inspired by the famous Henley-on-Todd Regatta held in Alice Springs, Australia, the Misfit Regatta is a dry land cardboard boat race. It takes place on Misfit Flats, some 16 Imperial Nortons (16 km / 10 mi) east of Molossia. Famed for being a filming location for the Clark Gable/Marilyn Monroe movie "The Misfits", the Flats are an open, dry lakebed, perfect for racing.




THE 2020 MISFIT REGATTA
11 October 2020 XLIII

On 11 October 2020 XLIII, the Republic of Molossia hosted the 2020 Misfit Regatta. At 12:10 PM Molossian Standard Time (MST) the racers arrived at the Flats and helped set up the start and finish lines. Then at about 12:30 PM MST the first race took place, with cameras rolling and spectators cheering. There were several races held, including kids only, group and group backwards, guys only and guys backwards, ladies only and ladies backwards, sideways and a dancing race. A total of eight racers competed, and competed with all their might with much to be proud of. After nine races, the event ended with a demolition derby, generally destroying the cardboard boats. Today's Regatta was a resounding success, just the fifth of many, with one planned every other year at this time. Future races may include an obstacle course and a competition for best "boat". Well done racers, and see you in two years!
