Fun with cardboard

Here are some photos of the cardboard boat races from SailFest. This year’s theme was Viking related, and one ambitious crew built this fine Viking dragon ship, which held up well in the water and ~ due in part to it’s four man crew ~ won the race quite tidily.
A completely poorly designed pirate ship ~ essential a cardboard box with a mast ~ sank equally quickly. But the captain was a crowd favorite because of his theatrical going down with the ship followed by a swim the length of the course, holding the mast aloft with his legs.

This is truely taking playing with paper too far. I love the viking boat, did they set it out to sea burning at the end?

They didn't send the Viking ship out to sea on fire. But they did put it on the bonfire that evening. At least they were talking about it. I wasn't there to witness the event.

Vikings always were a fine sea faring bunch. I've always identified with them as my(our) ancesters. The pirate had shades of Jack Sparrow.

That looks like a lot of fun!
