One Knot Shitbox
Have you ever thought you could beat a box rule but never had the ready cash to do it, well anarchist Hwyl is running a regatta for footy class radio controlled boats in Mystic Connecticut. It’s at the Wooden Boat show, on Saturday 27th of June, it will be at high slack water in a roped off area, after all these are one knot shit boxes. There’s no entry fee to race and free entrance to the show for participants.
Footy’s have to fit in a box twelve inches by six inches, and for this race have to be essentially wood. They can be built for less than $100 and there are free plans for the unadventurous on the Footy Web site as well as the rules and a pretty strange forum. Footies are restricted to two channels.
There are already aero rigs, and trimarans out there, so come on scow lovers, or maybe a shunting proa, we know Anarchists can do it, drag out your tools, show us your stuff.
