Registration for Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta Closes This Week

After pre-registered spots claimed by team’s competing last year filled up, time is running out to register for the second annual Cardboard Boat Regatta.

The event, hosted by the Reston Historic Trust & Museum, will be held on August 11. Registration closes tomorrow (July 20).

Participating teams construct a life-size cardboard boat that competes in timed heats. During last year’s inaugural event, 20 teams and more than 65 individuals took part in the event.

During last year’s regatta, 30 pre-registration slots filled up for this year’s event. This year, 60 spots are available. To sign up online, visit the museum’s website.
