On September 9, 2021, CBC Television debuted the Canadian television reality series Race Against the Tide. Ten teams of artists compete to create sand sculptures in the Bay of Fundy before the tide rises and destroys their works in this reality television series, which is anchored by Shaun Majumder in season 1 and Maestro Fresh Wes in season 2. Karen Fralich is one of two assessors that analyse the sculptures.
Race Against the Tide, which is produced by marblemedia, will return for a second season on CBC and CBC Gem on Sunday, July 10 at 8:30 p.m. (9 NT). This was confirmed by CBC today. The new season, which features a fresh set of sand sculptors competing against one another in the Bay of Fundy to produce remarkable sand sculptures before the world’s highest tide rolls in, is hosted by the award-winning Hip Hop musician Maestro Fresh Wes, who is located in New Brunswick.

Plot of Race Against the Tide
The sand sculptures may only be made by the artists for six hours each week before the tide sweeps them away. In the end, the two judges—Master Sculptor Rusty Croft of Carmel Valley, California, and five-time World Champion Karen Fralich of Burlington, Ontario—will choose which pair is going to win 10,000 dollars.
An original competition series with 10 teams of two world-class, very experienced sand sculptors competing to produce astounding works of art created solely out of the sand while avoiding elimination is presented by comedian Shaun Majumder. The historic and stunning Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick is where these best-in-show pairs compete not only against one another but also against Mother Nature’s relentless clock and the highest tide in history.
In the realm of sand sculpture, the stakes have never been greater because all of the competitors’ works, no matter how magnificent, are doomed to be carried away by the tide on the same day. The Race Against the Tide “Champions” will ultimately be determined by one team whose talent, inventiveness, and persistence make a lasting impact.
