The seas and oceans have long fascinated mankind, so there is little wonder that boat and ship building has long been a hobby for many. While some are interested in creating vessels that can be used on the water, some people are more interested in crafting models for hours of enjoyment. They often see it as a way to create their own world of adventures without leaving home, but some of them take it a step further and making working boat models.
Regattas are now held for those who build working model boats, and the competition is sometimes fierce. There are different categories of boats to race, but many depend upon setting their sails remotely to catch as much wind as possible. Remote controllers are the way they communicate with their tiny ships and boats, and they can steer them from the shore. Winning the race is fun, but being able to get from the start to finish is all the satisfaction many are seeking in this hobby.
