Cardboard Regatta sets sail for DCMM

Students from Gibraltar and Sturgeon Bay set sail in YMCA pools earlier this week thanks to a new educational initiative from the Door County Maritime Museum. With nothing but tape and a few pieces of cardboard, students used educational materials from the Door County Maritime Museum to make boats with the ability to use them as actual watercrafts. Community Engagement Coordinator Carrie Dorski says it is all part of the educational outreach initiative it launched earlier this year.

Dorski hopes the winners are inspired to a similar challenge during the museum’s Classic and Wooden Boat Festival in the future. The Door County Maritime Museum plans on expanding the program to all Door County schools next year.
