When completed the teams then sail (with breath as wind power and hands tied behind his/her back) up/down a 3’ trough of water, one with surprise twists and all in the name of fun! Each model boat team has minimum 3 people for the model boat-building. One crew member is designated to run the actual “race” between two teams amidst jeers and cheers from those attending, fueled by exceptional party beverages and delicious snacks.
