Our Kardboard Kayak Race 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. Then they will be ready 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. The Kayak Race is divided into separate heats, with prizes awarded to participants in the Family Fun heat (geared toward family groups where kayak paddlers must be 14 years old or younger) and the Paddling Pros heat (geared toward adult and/or “skilled” competitors). Speed will be the true test!

The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum in collaboration with Semana Nautica hosts the annual SBMM Kardboard Kayak Race on Saturday, July 12th from 1 – 3 pm (registration: 12pm). Supported by Condor Express, Sambo’s Restaurant, Santa Barbara Family Life and Santa Barbara Parent Click, in addition to, Channel Island Outfitters,  Santa Barbara Sailing Center, and Sushi Go Go.
