BELEWS LAKE, N.C. -- The rain didn't stop some boaters from taking to Belews Lake Friday morning, but these weren't just any boaters or your typical boats.

These were students from the mechanical engineering technical program at Forsyth Technical Community College in Winston-Salem for the annual "Cardboard Boat Regatta."

The program has been taking cardboard boats to the water for more than 40 years to test the limits of cardboard, duct tape, glue and the students' imagination.
