The reigning Kinetic Grand Champions, Tempus Fugitorium, have flipped over in Humboldt Bay ensuring that they will be ineligible for an ACE award and meaning we are guaranteed a new champion this year.
They are currently being assisted by a Humboldt County Sheriffs Office boat.

Sculptures continue to enter the water near the Wharfinger Building and are paddling, pushing and rowing their way toward Samoa Bridge.
