Cardboard boat races

Students use all sorts of materials to construct homemade vessels for the Roth Pond Regatta, a Stony Brook University tradition since the 1980s, where students in single-, two- and four-person homemade cardboard boats sail across the 250-foot Roth Pond in a high-spirited and festive competition that marks the beginning of final exams on May 2, 2014 in Stony Brook.
