AeroRacers new Gutter Sailboat kits are a lot of fun to build, decorate and race. All you need is scissors, scotch tape and permanent markers to finish these wind powered racers. Our Gutter Sailboat kits come with pre-drilled balsa wood hulls that the students shape with the sandpaper included in the kits after they learn which shape works best for bodies traveling through water. The dual sails consisting of a spinnaker and a main sail are waterproof and can be decorated with permanent markers along with the finished hull. Both sails can be adjusted and move independently of each other. The keel weight is adjustable as is the rudder. Our Gutter Sailboats run in gutters, pools, ponds, lakes and oceans.
Our Sailboat Racer is a boat that will run in gutters or pools/ponds. Students design/shape the hull and decide whether to run with the spinnaker and/or the main sail. The kit contains: pre-drilled balsa wood hull, laser-cut rudder, mast, water proof sails, keel weights and all other small parts required to complete the sail boat, building and racing instructions. Multi packs feature one set of instructions.
Get a couple of vinyl gutters and 4 gutter endcaps at your local hardware / home improvement store and you are ready to host your first regatta. Gutters are inexpensive to buy and they set up/tear down in seconds. In addition they are really simple to store outside as they do not deteriorate. They are easy to fill with water and just as easy to drain the water from the gutter channels once the racing is done.
