Nick Geary, 18, front, and Matt Gillespie, 17, continue to paddle as their entry in the seventh heat begins to break-up during the 17th annual cardboard boat races Monday at East Lyme High School. Students in Technology Education teacher Lew Tucker's Engineering and pre-Engineering classes build and race the boats as part of their coursework. Other students as well as faculty, staff and guests are invited to participate. Tucker's students are required to construct a boat using only cardboard and duct tape and complete one lap of the pool.
