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 and sponsored by Union Bank, hosts the annual SBMM Kardboard Kayak Race onSaturday, July 13th from 1 - 3 pm (registration: 12pm). Supported by Santa Barbara County Parent Click and Santa Barbara Family Life, in addition to, Channel Island Outfitters, Condor Express, Sambo’s Restaurant, and Santa Barbara Sailing Center.
