The history of Concrete Canoe in the United States dates back to the 1960's. However, the first ASCE National Concrete Canoe Competition was held in 1988. Teams from across the U.S. and Canada combine engineering and hydrodynamic designs to create a canoe that is able to sail across a body of water. In adition to the canoe shape and mix design, teams must abide by strict rules and regulations set forth by the American Society of Civil Engineers .
