The North Shore Yacht Club or NSYC, holds its annual Cardboard Boat Race at Park Avenue beach, where there is a boat show on the beach just before the race of the cardboard boats. The race is short and runs parallel to the shore. All participants are welcome but there are some rules as: like, the boats are to be built of cardboard, tape, paint and glue only and all racers are required to have personal lifejackets; the boats are human- or wind- powered, although NSYC kayak or stand up paddleboard paddles only are accepted. Awards are presented at the informal party following the race.
