Roth Regatta!!

As you can see from the photo above, Michael and I had lunch at Subway today. I COULD EAT THERE EVERY DAY!! :D I always order the same thing: turkey and swiss cheese on toasted honey oat, all vegetables (except lettuce, spinach, and jalapeños), with light mayonnaise and chipotle sauce. So delicious! And only ~600 calories for a foot-long, apparently. :P It definitely made me feel better about how terrible my hair was. XD

Anyway, we attended Stony Brook University’s Roth Regatta afterwards. To quickly summarize, it’s an annual boat race on Roth Pond that anyone can enter as a team. The catch? You can only use three materials: cardboard, duct tape, and paint.

This year’s theme was “Superheroes and Villains”, which was quite exciting since many of the teams chose to build really creative boats and dress up as characters when they finally set sail. Even though many of the boats sank as soon as they were in the water, it’s the effort and spirit that counts. I took photos of my favorite boats! :D

Michael’s suitemate helped construct and row this Gyarados! :D


Ivy and Joker rowing their Gotham-themed boat!

A massive batmobile that had the batbike spring out of it mid-race. :P

Reptar from Rugats!


Powerpuff Girls! (Look closely at the “mast”)


Really impressive cardboard Bowser!


Team Beowulf!


The Red Power Ranger looking like he got punched. XD


One Piece!


Captain Planet!


Aquaman riding his seahorse!

Gyarados winning second place in the final round. :D

This was probably the best races at Roth Regatta we’ve had since I’ve been attending Stony Brook. (Probably because I’ve never stayed until the end during previous years.) I’m glad the weather was so nice, and that over 1500 students came out to support. I might consider building one for next year with my building. XD If you guys are interested, you can also check out the unofficial photo gallery here! : ) Until next time! ^o^

  1. You got some great pictures! Jason would like the last picture. I definitely underestimated the event this year. Though to be fair, this is the first one that hasn’t sucked. They were very organized this year.

    That boat competition looked like a lot of fun!!! The ones in your pictures all look really awesome! I’d love to participate in something like that someday!
    And I vote for light golden brown :D

    • I try to attend every year, but the previous ones were really lame. I’m glad that this one was actually really fun. : ) I wish we were allowed to make a cardboard boat and just sail it around Bayside Marina. XD
