Deadline Extended to Register for First Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta

If you missed Tuesday’s deadline to register for Lake Anne’s first Cardboard Boat Regatta, scheduled for later this month, never fear. The deadline to get a craft registered for the event has been extended to Sunday, Reston Museum announced Wednesday on social media.

The museum has been sharing numerous examples of possible boat designs on its Instagram account in recent days, including a shark, a tractor, a pirate ship and more.

Participants in the event will be asked to construct and decorate their own boats, which will take to the water in timed heats. Some extraneous material can be used in building the vessel, but there are many rules and limitations to what can be utilized.

Adult and family teams can register for $100; student teams can register for $40. All the proceeds from the event will go toward the Reston Historic Trust & Museum. Awards will be given to the fastest boats in each category, as well as the “Titanic” award for the ship that sinks “most spectacularly.”

“We can’t wait to see the creativity that everyone is putting into their cardboard boats,” said Elizabeth Didiano, executive director of the Reston Historic Trust & Museum. “Some teams are designing colorful, flashy boats while others are focusing on what will help their boat float the best.”

The event is scheduled for 2-6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 12. A pre-event “launch party” is scheduled for 6-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11.

For more information or to register a boat, visit the event’s webpage or contact the Reston Historic Trust at 703-709-7700 or [email protected].
