Berkeley Institute floated away with the plaudits after finishing first and second in this afternoon's Cardboard Boat Challenge.

The event, at the Bermuda National Aquatics Centre, saw teams of two to five students given cardboard boxes, duct tape and a box cutter.

They then had to build a build a boat which could float two people.

Nineteen teams from seven high schools competed in the challenge, organised by the Institute of Bermuda Architects and the Bermuda Association of Professional Engineers.

Team Oracle — comprising Jahkaya Douglas, Camerin Pickering, Jecoa Thomas and Eduardo Vieira — completed the fastest 50-metre lap of the pool in a time of 56 seconds.

The America's Cup Endeavour Programme donated prizes for the event, with the winning team receiving a blowboat experience at Morgan's Point.
