We are challenging you to design and build a human-powered cardboard boat capable of racing 50 yards. All boats must be designed and constructed before race day and may be powered by canoe/kayak paddles or muscle power!

Once registration closes on February 10, all registrants will receive a list of rules and accepted materials. Stay after the races for open swim!
