Boat Builders Put Their Crafts to the Test

The 26th Annual Cardboard Boat Race held Friday, May 22 was full of excitement and surprise. In addition to the clever concepts and brilliant engineering of the 10 cardboard boats (constructed using only industrial grade cardboard, a limited amount of adhesive, and paint) there was a “promposal” and the unexpected capsizing of the canoe carrying Headmaster Charlie Britton, former Boat Race Coordinator and current Science Teacher Rob Smoot, and Creative Director Heather McPeters. Congratulations to all the participants and to the Navy team which earned two awards for speed and the B.O.B (Best Overall Boat) award.
