Annual Cardboard Boat Race

Cardboard Boat Race 2018

*Updated information as of October 8, 2019:

Due to inclement weather, Egan Maritime’s Sea of Opportunities’ annual Cardboard Boat Race has been moved to the Nantucket Community Pool. The eighth grade students will race their seaworthy cardboard vessels at the pool on Thursday, October 10 from 1pm to 2:30pm. This yearly, not-to-be-missed, fall regatta is highly entertaining, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for the Nantucket community to support our local students and their experiential learning projects. Spectators must enter through the pool door and watch the race from the upstairs gallery.

As of September 2019, Sea of Opportunities has impacted over 4,800 local students and taught more than 1,700 students in the eighth grade classroom, and the program only continues to grow in reach, service and influence. Egan Maritime is proud and grateful to our generous donors and partners who help make Sea of Opportunities and our work possible.
