Every year, students and faculty face off in a race across Roth Pond in handmade boats made of cardboard, duct tape, and paint. The object is to get across the poind first without sinking. There are two racing categories, speedsters (1-person boats) and yachts (2-person boats). The boats are also judged by members of the local yacht club.
