Sailors strug­gle to keep their ves­sels afloat as they com­pete in the Jamestown Yacht Club’s Fools’ Rules Re­gatta in Jamestown, Rhode Is­land, this past Au­gust. Each sail-pow­ered “ves­sel” must be built on the beach in two hours with non-ma­rine items (no boat parts or sails) and crews must keep them from sink­ing or dis­in­te­grat­ing over the 500-yard course. Awards in­clude “Best Theme or Cos­tume,” “Most In­ge­nious De­sign” and the most cov­eted of all— “Worst Ex­am­ple of Naval Ar­chi­tec­ture.”
