For those of you unfamiliar with the Raingutter Regatta (as I was myself a few hours ago), the boys actually propel their boats by blowing into the sail. Here is an action shot of Miles - sorry so blurry, but it is an action shot (I think I got him right as he trippd over the sawhorse - which he did every time he raced:)
Miles actually did really well. It was a double elimination competition and he won 3 before he lost 2. He lost to his best friend (who had a really cool "Parry the Platypus" boat) - who ended up taking second place overall. I was really proud of the sportsmanship that Miles is learning - he really had a good time tonight and wasn't upset when he lost. Here is a video of Miles's first race - he picked it up quick (watch for the trip though:).
