Cardboard Boat Regatta

Saturday, May 15, 2021

Problem: To build a manned vessel made from the construction of cardboard. It must be maneuverable and stay afloat for 25 yards. Solution: Grab a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 of most creative, adventurous and fun-loving friends or family members to participate in this crazy, exciting Cardboard Regatta at Valiant Pool. Boats can only be made of cardboard. Joints and seams may be glued and/or taped. Duct tape, contact cement, rubber cement, or construction adhesive may be used. Decorations are encouraged – but cannot aid in floatation. Trophies will be given for best decorated boat, best boat design and best EPIC Titanic (sinking) moment. Trophies will also be awarded for the fastest in the age categories – Youth (12 and under), high school (13 – 18), adult (19 and older) & seasoned (55+). Lifeguards will be on duty during all races and lifejackets must worn during the race. An event you won’t wanna miss!
