Kardboard Kayak Races
Build it & Race it
Our annual Kardboard Kayak Race held in July is where teams participate in a battle of wits, design capabilities, and courage! Teams of up to 4 will receive 2 sheets of cardboard, 1 roll of tape, a marker, a utility knife, a yardstick, and one hour to construct a functioning kayak. After an hour of assembly, it is time to race other teams in their heat, finding out whose design can hold up to the pressure of paddling out to a buoy and back.
SBMM in collaboration with Semana Nautica hosts the annual Kardboard Kayak Races at West Beach. This event is sponsored by Condor Express and supported by Sambo’s Restaurant, Santa Barbara County Parent Click and Santa Barbara Family Life, in addition to, Channel Islands Outfitters, Santa Barbara Sailing Center, and Sushi Go Go.
Registration instructions and forms will be available by June 1st if you dare to take part.
