Raingutter Regatta

The Raingutter Regatta is a racing event that uses miniature sailboats. Although the seas are only 10-foot lengths of raingutter filled with water, and the ships a mere 7-8 inches long, the race is a very exciting event. Each boy builds his own boat with supervision and help from parents or other family members. He also provides the wind for the sail with his own lungpower.

The regatta boat is made from 100% recycled materials and can be decorated in any way desired. At the regatta, the boats are raced in pairs on raingutter courses propelled by the boys blowing into the sails.

The event ends with head-to-head racing between the pack and den leaders, providing additional excitement and laughter for the boys.
