Buccaneer Regatta

The Annual Buccaneer Cardboard Boat Regatta challenges amateur boat builders to design, build, and navigate boats made entirely of corrugated cardboard. Come and enjoy the fun as you watch the masterful maneuvers of boats braving the waves at Hollecker Lake. All boats must be built of corrugated cardboard. Other acceptable materials are duct tape, glue, caulking, and paint. No cardboard and wood, no cardboard and plastic, no cardboard and metal. The only exceptions are the oars. These exceptions are not considered part of the boat and can be made of materials other than cardboard. All boats must be human-powered. No motors. 

Goals

The Dawson Community College Buccaneer Regatta is a fun, enjoy yourself, have a good time race. Therefore, no matter how fast, slow, big, small, sensible, or outrageous your boat is, the first rule is that the boat designers, builders, racers, and supporters have fun. The race is open to everyone.
