Boat Construction and Racing Rules

BOAT CONSTRUCTION RULES

The boat must be constructed  between 1030 and 1215 HRS

Boats must be made from the official BSA Raingutter Regatta Trimaran Boat Kit. All parts (2 outriggers, polymer hull, mast, sail and 4 screws) provided in the kit must be used in the boat construction. (NO substitutions are allowed!)

Additional parts, decals, paint, and glue are permitted. Only boats with dried paint, decorations, glue (adhesives) will be allowed to compete.

Outriggers/Hull: The Outriggers must be no longer than 7" or shorter than 6 1⁄2". The finished boat must be 3-1/4" wide, which is the dimension of the molded hull. The outriggers must be solid and not split into multiple parts and must be evenly placed. The outriggers should be cut on the leading edge as shown in the enclosed instructions.

The mast may not be higher than 7” from the deck, nor shorter than 6” from the deck.

Basically, the Trimaran Boat should look like a Trimaran Boat displayed on the box. The boat requires no keel or rudder and none may be added.

 

Sail: Must use the sail provided in the kit. It may be trimmed, but cannot be enlarged or added to, but may be decorated. The sail may only be attached to the mast by glue (this is highly recommended), no mechanical fasteners will be allowed and the sail may not be in contact with any part of the boat except the mast. No CUP or BOX sails will be accepted. It should look like the boat on the box.

The mast hole is molded into the top of the plastic hull and is the only placement allowed for the mast. No deviations will be allowed and no modifications to the hole are allowed. The mast MUST BE perpendicular (90 degrees) to the hull, angling the mast in any direction is not allowed.

Modifications above the waterline for creative or decorative purposes are allowed as long as they do not alter sail performance. Details such as figures, decals and paint are permissible as long as these details are securely glued or fastened to the boat. The scouts are encouraged to decorate their boat, as this adds to the experience.

 

RACING

The Race course will be two  10 foot rain gutters  At the start end will be a fan. Only the fan and any natural wind will be used to propel the boat.

The Races are timed

Each boat will get 1 practice timed race . Each boat will have 2 timed races.  One on each Gutter. The fastest time out of 2 races will be the boats final time. Two Boats will race together until the entry list has been run through twice. Order of races will be determined by lottery.

Racers may make any adjustments to the boat within the construction rules between their first and second race.
