Rain Gutter Regatta
The raingutter regatta is a racing event for Cub Scouts in the Boy Scouts of America that is the sailboat equivalent of the pinewood derby.
The boats are raced in a standard rain gutter that is ten feet long, placed on a table or saw horses, and filled to the top with water. The boats are propelled by blowing on the sail, either directly or through a drinking straw; the boat cannot be touched with hands or the straw. The first boat to reach the end of the gutter is the winner. The overall winner is determined by an elimination system.
On my honor,
I will do my best
to do my duty to God and my country,
to obey the Scout Law,
to help other people at all times,
to keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake and morally straight.
A Scout is
Clean, and Reverent.
Softly falls the light of day,
While our campfire fades away.
Silently each Scout should ask
Have I done my daily task?
Have I kept my honor bright?
Can I guiltless sleep tonight?
Have I done and have I dared
Everything to be prepared?
Sung to the tune of “Oh Christmas Tree”
