The Concrete Canoe Team designs, builds and races a 20 foot concrete canoe for annual competition in the Upstate New York Region. This year’s competition will be held at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
In the 2016-2017 competition, the team placed 4th overall and constructed a canoe weighing only 165 pounds, the lightest canoe from Cornell yet! In 2015-2016, the team placed 3rd overall. In competition year 2013-2014, the team was able to qualify for and compete in 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 lead Amina Rahill-Marier. You may also read our recruitment pamphlet for more information.
