SAIL, ROW, PADDLE OR SINK YOUR WAY INTO SUMMER! Be a part of the 11th Annual Cardboard Yacht Regatta!

Have you ever dreamed of setting sail across the waters in your very own yacht? Now you can build your own cardboard yacht and test its seaworthiness in a race across the Beach House Pool. Build a yacht using just corrugated cardboard and duct tape, decorate it, cross your fingers, and hope you can make it to the other side.
Two people must be on the yacht during the race. All boats must be human-powered (no motors). People’s Choice Awards will be given in a variety of categories, including “Most Likely to Sink”, “Best Use of Theme”, and “Most Spirited”. The Beach House Courtyard will open for yachts to be on display beginning at 9 am. Races will launch beginning at 11 am.
 
For questions or more information, visit the Annenberg Community Beach House website, or call the Beach House at 310-458-4904.
 
Preregistration is required to race your yacht. Register early and enjoy building your boat with friends and family! $20 entry fee per yacht. Payment is NOT required for each sailor who will be on the yacht. This is a team registration. Please register once per yacht that will be entered in the event.
 
You will be asked for the names and ages of sailors in the registration process.
