As part of Semana Nautica, the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum hosts the 16th annual Kardboard Kayak Race Team Challenge
SBMM’s Kardboard Kayak Races challenge teams to participate in a battle of wits, creativity, design, and courage! Teams of up to four people each receive two sheets of cardboard, one roll of duct tape, a permanent marker, a utility knife, a yardstick, and just one hour to construct a functioning kayak out of ONLY those materials. Each of the assigned team paddlers will then be ready to race--and to find out whose design can hold up to the water and the pressure of being paddled out to a buoy and back. The Kardboard Kayak Races are divided into separate heats to ensure fair competition: Family Fun (paddler must be 14 years old or younger) and Paddling Pros (paddler who are “skilled” competitors). Let the races begin!
