The Great Boat Race January 3, 2018 Ever race a boat that you made? Every year the kids at Saulaine do just that. They are given requirements- height and length for example, restrictions- using only string and beeswax for assembly. Oh, and every part of the boat has to be found in nature. The kids are divided up into teams of mixed ages and genders and they work together to build a boat for the great race. The winner gets bragging rights and a chocolate bar. Yum!
