Announcing the 1st Annual Cardboard Regatta!

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the MIASF has revamped the annual Plywood Regatta event to a Cardboard Regatta event for 2021!

With many students continuing to attend school virtually, we have created a Cardboard Regatta that students will be able to work on at home either by themselves or with a partner. Don’t worry, we tested it ourselves to make sure the boats will float in the pool. Watch it here.

Students will have two weeks to build their cardboard vessels at home using specific materials, some of which will be supplied by MIASF, and then compete in a timed race at the pool at South Broward High School in Hollywood.

The 1st Annual Cardboard Regatta will be held on April 17-18, 2021, and now is your chance to be a part of helping to build boating's future!

Sponsorship starts at $500 for a future boat builder at this fun and important event. Proceeds benefit the Plywood Regatta Scholarship Fund which helps participants pay for advanced education toward careers in the marine industry. View all sponsorship opportunities by clicking here.

Volunteers are needed to help with event set up on Friday, April 16th and to help with various event logistics on Saturday and Sunday (April 17th & 18th).
