Rain Gutter Regatta

In Singapore, Scouts is done through the school and we have yet to sign up.  The activities for boys ages 8-11 is called activity days.  Ryan's first activity was this week.  And lo and behold, it was the Rain Gutter Regatta.  Way to kick it off!  We found out on Sunday that the activity was Wednesday.  On Monday morning we got right to work getting his boat crafted for the regatta.  I wish I had taken more pictures of the process but Ryan really did do most of the work.  I just helped with quality control.

All done!  The sail design was all Ryan.  I did help with the bubble letters but he drew the little (Minecraft, of course) guy.  

The directions were fairly easy and the boat was pretty hard to do incorrectly.  But the one thing I wish we had done differently was to glue the mast and sail in place.  That would have prevented some getting stuck.  



I love how excited Evan is.  This was his first round down the rain gutter.  They did a very nice job of giving all the boys plenty of opportunities to race their boats.







The boys all did a great job on their boats and had good sportsmanship throughout the evening.  Ryan sure had a blast!
