The Great Salem Maritime Cardboard Boat Regatta Strikes Back!

Loading Events


On August 3, 2024, join us as we celebrate the Salem Maritime Festival. Starting at 11:00am sharp, the tide waits for no one!, we will kick off a series of heats testing the engineering, ingenuity, determination, and artistry of our participants. Launching from Derby Beach, each cardboard boat must hold two people, a Captain and their crew, who will paddle their ship out and around a questionably far buoy and back to the beach. Cherished trophies will be awarded in a series of competitive categories. This will obviously be a spectacle long remembered and not to be missed.
