Cardboard Boat Regatta Register View Cart

*Only one team member needs to register!

Join FNSB Parks and Recreation on Saturday, July 27th from noon to 3:00pm at Tanana Lakes for our second annual Cardboard Boat Regatta!

The Cardboard Boat Regatta challenges amateur boat builders – youth and adult – to design, build and navigate boats made entirely of corrugated cardboard. The crafty cardboard creations then sail (or sink!) in Tanana Lakes. Spectators have just as much fun cheering as they watch the courageous crews compete for trophies and prizes.  

Life jackets are required and will be provided by Fairbanks North Star Borough Parks and Recreation. 

The Cardboard Boat Regatta is meant to be a family-friendly and fun event. No matter how fast, slow or outrageous your boat is, the goal is that the builders, racers, and spectators have fun!

$25 team entry - all supplies included.

You must be at least 8 years of age to participate.
