NEW YORK (PIX11) — For Stony Brook University students, tradition involves a lot of innovation — and the possibility of getting completely soaked.

After a few years off due to the pandemic, Stony Brook hosted its 33rd Annual Roth Pond Regatta. The mission: sail 200 yards in boats made out of cardboard and duct tape.
