IT SOUNDS like an­other episode of Ce­leste Bar­ber’s Royal Caribbean #cruisechal­lengeac­cepted, but in fact, the Lake Anne Card­board Boat Re­gatta, held an­nu­ally in the Amer­i­can state of Vir­ginia, is the real deal.

Touted as a fam­ily-friendly event, con­tes­tants are charged with build­ing their ves­sels out of card­board, us­ing only duct tape, mask­ing tape, wood glue or con­tact ce­ment to keep their cre­ation afloat.

En­tries in the re­gatta in­cluded ev­ery­thing from com­put­er­gen­er­ated laser cut ves­sels, to care­fully de­signed and re­searched, pon­toon-as­sisted painted works of art.

What­ever floats your boat!
