The Rye Y launched its first Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta on Friday, March 28.
Over 30 boats, handmade from cardboard and duct tape, descended upon the pool at the Rye YMCA. Designs were out of this world from sharks, to Star Wars, to the Titanic, to a pirate ship, to a 4-person catamaran, and even a Minion from Despicable me! For those skeptics, it was truly proven that cardboard and duct tape CAN float!
There were over 6 heats of racing with boat drivers of all ages. The overall best, most creative design goes to the “SS Minion” – designed and fully crafted by Sophia Rivers (age 11) and Caroline Geller (age 12) – both students at Rye Middle School. Winners in each heat are receiving a one-of-a-kind 1st Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta collector’s t-shirt.
Heat 1 – Anderson Family
Heat 2 – Pozios Family
Heat 3 – Geller/Rivers Families
Heat 4 – Aubry Family
Heat 5 – Tavitian Family
Heat 6 – Sumner Family
Stay tuned for details for the 2nd Annual Regatta in 2015!
