Cardboard Boat Regatta

June 7 at 9 am
North Post Outdoor Pool (across from the Commissary)

Ever think that only the mega-rich can own a sea-worthy ship and sail in a regatta? Not true!!! At Fort Belvoir's Cardboard Boat Regatta, all participating watercraft are made entirely of the same readily available material - cardboard! Don't be fooled by the simplicity of lowly cardboard; it can be transformed into whimsical pieces of floating art. Whether your team spends a few hours or multiple weeks designing and creating your unique vessel, the objective is clear: have an outrageously good time and win if you can! Some even strive to go down in a spectacular blaze of glory to earn honors for the most fantastic sinking. Spectators are welcomed to attend the Regatta and encourage the crew aboard each ship!
Let's see how many sea-worthy ships make it across the choppy waters of DFMWR's North Post Outdoor Pool on June 7th at 9 am. Gather your crew members, select a Captain and fill out a registration form by May 30th. To start your voyage, download the registration form here, call 703-805-9239 or register in person at the Community Center.
