Race:

2 categories:

decided or left afloat.

Boats:

  • may be constructed out of any materials
  • may not be powered by any means other than sail
  • must be between 12 and 18 inches in length
  • may be constructed prior to event.  Must be constructed
    prior to launch of first scheduled heat.
  • period-like design design preferred.  Obvious
    modern designed boats disallowed:  ie. no
    cruise ships.
  • must float
  • must sail unassisted from start to finish line – no
    helping!

    their own boat.
