The “Titanic” trophy, for the boat that sank most spectacularly, went to the Batboat Mobile.

A pre-event “launch party” was held Friday night, at which design awards were given:

  • Most Likely to Float: Nova Labs
  • Most Reston: Reston Association
  • Most Creative: Kalypso’s Sports Tavern
  • Best Design: Lake Anne Brew House
  • Best Name: “Blowfish”

All proceeds from the event benefitted the Reston Museum and Historic Trust.

Based on the success of this year’s event, the Museum has announced it will hold its second Cardboard Boat Regatta on Aug. 11, 2018.
