For the eighth year, teams of all ages tested their ingenuity in crafting homemade cardboard yachts and getting them across the historic Annenberg Community Beach House pool in this annual race. For the first year the Regatta will be held during the day and the pool will be closed for recreation swim.
Two-person teams test the seaworthiness of their homemade cardboard yachts in a race across the Annenberg Community Beach House pool. Prior to race day, teams construct yachts from corrugated cardboard and duct tape, and decorate them with a creative theme.
Participants bring their yachts to the Annenberg Community Beach House on race day to paddle their way across the length of the pool as spectators cheer them on. Awards are given in a variety of fun categories. Entry fee was $20 per team. This event will follow LA County Department of Public Health's COVID-19 protocols.
