 The Waldo County YMCA's Third Annual Cardboard Boatrace! 

We invite the public to gather as much cardboard and duct tape as you can find, and come set sail in our pool! With races for kids, teens, adults, and mixed ages. All funds from this event go to our YMCA's Financial Assistance program. Last year the Waldo County YMCA provided over $73,000 in financial assistance to kids, families and members of our community. Please contact our front desk to sign up, or download the registration form attached and turn in with payment to get registered. 

Materials Allowed:

  • Corrugated Cardboard (no wax covered, shiny or ink coated, staples or sharp items)
  • Duct Tape (any brand, color or design is welcome!)
  • Scissors (or other cutting utensils)
  • Paddles of your choice (can be hand made, boat paddles, or anything else you think would work!)

Maximum boat length is 8 feet. 


Stay tuned for more info!
