Forsyth Technical Community College will hold its annual Cardboard Boat Regatta on Friday, April 26, from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at the Piney Bluff Boat Launch Ramp at Belews Creek.

Mechanical engineering students will compete in the regatta, in six teams of two students, as a requirement for the school’s Strength of Materials course. Students design and construct boats from only corrugated cardboard, duct tape, liquid nails and waterproof paint. The students then sail the boats, with the help of a small engine, around a course set up in the lake. The students’ goal is to return to shore safe and dry, and not sink the boat.
