cod fish races
(actually it's haddock or cusk since cod fishing has been shut down in the gulf of maine but we can't seem to bring ourselves to change the name)

Grab some friends and form a team.  One member of the team dresses in oil pants, jacket, and boots and carries two fresh smelling fish around a short course by Whale Park. Upon return, they trade outfits and fish with the next member of the relay team.  First team with all its members back to Whale Park wins!   Open to the public, teams of 4, sign up in Whale Park at the Friends of Windjammer Days Tent.

And to make things even more exciting, this year our sponsor has added cash prizes to this event! So join in the fun, put on the slicks, and you could win $25 to $100. Surely, that's worth carrying a smelly fish or two.
