Cardboard Regatta

June 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Assemble a team, build a boat, and see how seaworthy your vessel really is!

Teams of at least one adult (age 18+) and one youth (age 5-17) will build a boat entirely out of cardboard and duct tape and bring it to Kandle Pool to test its seaworthiness!

Teams are limited to 2 adults (age 18+) and 4 students (age 5-17).

The rules are simple: create the best boat you can using cardboard, duct tape, and your imagination. A time-trial lap around the pool will be the first round, followed by a ‘last boat standing’ elimination round where the waves at Kandle Pool will be turned on.

All hands on deck!

Check-in at 9:00 am
Event Begins at 9:30 am
