Hunters Woods ES rows to top of Lake Anne Cardboard Regatta

Thousands of spectators converged at Lake Anne Plaza over the weekend for the annual Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta.

This year, the event returned after a two-year pause due to the pandemic. More than 40 boats took part in the race, with Hunters Woods Elementary earning first place in the cadet category.

The annual event is organized by the Reston Museum, which is based at 1639 Washington Plaza North. The event is designed to encourage community pride in Reston. Teams construct and their life-sized cardboard boats, which take part in timed heats.

“We could not be happier with how the return of the Lake Anne Cardboard Boat Regatta went!” Reston Museum Executive Director Alex Campbell wrote in a statement to FFXnow. “The boat designs were amazing and it was wonderful to connect with the community again through this favorite event. This event always brings joy, but this year’s race was truly something special.”

YMCA won the navigator race, while Cinder won the skipper race. The people’s choice award — selected based on attendee votes — went to Mr. Matt and the WildFlowers. The Titanic award went to Terraset Elementary School.

Pre-registration for next year’s event is already underway. It will be taken through Saturday and the race will be held next year on August 12.

This year’s title sponsor was 123 Junk.
