It’s “A Whole New World” as the Disney-themed 31st annual Roth Pond Regatta takes place online this year. Get ready to build your boats and vote for your favorites on Friday, May 8.
On May 8, teams will promote their boats through their social media and must tag @stonybrookusg on Instagram or Facebook. Boats can be any size, and they can only be constructed of cardboard, paper, clay and/or aluminum foil.
During the morning, all boats will be showcased in heats for a set amount of time to try to get as many votes as they can. The winner of each heat will be determined by the number of votes the boat gets through social media channels. Winners of each heat will be chosen to move on to the next heat.
Boats will be judged on design, appearance, apparent sea-worthiness and originality. Award categories are:
- Most spirited (best adherence to the theme)
- Best Reusable Boat
- Best in Show (most creative design)
- Fan Favorite
Winners of the Roth Regatta will be announced on Monday, May 11.
If you are interested in participating, submit your registration HERE along with a photo of your boat by Thursday, May 7, at 7 pm.
