The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is excited about hosting the 17th annual Kardboard Kayak Race Team Challenge, in conjunction with Semana Nautica.

SBMM’s Kardboard Kayak Races challenge families and 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 is a “skilled” competitor). Let the races and fun begin!

FEE: $30 SBMM Member (per team)
