About Us

The Concrete Canoe Team designs, builds and races a 20 foot concrete canoe for annual competition in the Upstate New York Region. Next year’s competition will be held at Syracuse University.

In the previous year, the team placed 3rd overall. In 2015-2016, the team was able to construct a canoe weighing only 170 lbs, the lightest canoe from Cornell yet! In competition year 2014-2015, the team was able to qualify for and compete in the national competition.

There are 6 sub-teams: the Logistics team, the Mix Design team, the Mold design team, the Aesthetics team, the Analysis team, and the Paddling team, so there are plenty of ways to become involved!

We are interested in having members of all years and skill levels on the team and recruit in the fall semester. If you are interested in joining, contact team captains Carolyn Schwartz and Daniella Blyakhman. You may also read our recruitment pamphlet for more information.
