Kid’s Events!


Free Kid’s Events 

Ahoy sailors! This year we’ve upped the kids content for LOWISA 50!  We’ve brought back our old favorite events – Treasure hunt! Hawaiian Luau! “Splash Mountain” water trampoline! SHAMBATTLE! added a few new ones – Betty Crocker for kids! Fishing Derby! 

And are introducing the KIDS-ONLY LOWISA Week-long Explorer Challenge!

Weather-permitting each anchorage will have a self-guided activity that Explorers will keep track of in their own explorer guidebook.  Get your game-on kids because this one will be fun.  Each participating boat (racers & cruisers) with kids aboard will get a special LOWISA Explorer kit which will contain all the hints/materials you’ll need!  This week-long activity is in addition to any planned activities described in the itinerary below!
