Students Make Big Splash at Roth Pond Regatta


A genuinely unique Stony Brook tradition dating from 1989, the Roth Pond Regatta takes place on the last Friday of April. Teams representing clubs, organizations and administrative offices race across Roth Pond in makeshift craft constructed only of cardboard, duct tape and paint.

This year’s theme, in keeping with the University’s new  branding initiative, was “Under the Sea and Far Beyond.”

The Roth Yachting Club names an admiral, a vice admiral, and an honorary commodore to preside over the event. Students, faculty and staff compete and trophies are awarded to the winners. Nobody stays dry.
