TitleWhere to Blow

CategorySpeed Tips

CommentIf you use straws to blow the boats, aim the air blast on the bottom half of the sail.
The fastest boats were the ones that the boys blew straight down the gutter (taller boys who could lean over right above the raingutter.) The smaller boys did better if they let the boat run against one side of the raingutter instead of trying to blow left or right to keep a straight course.
