Rocketboat Day is a participatory event where people build little boats, power them with rocket engines and race them to see which one gets the furthest. The inaugural event took place on a nice, calm bit of water somewhere on the Brussels to Charleroi kanal. Let's find out what happens when a C6 model rocket engine is attached to a boat made out of anything you can get your hands on. The cool breeze off the water will blow the sweet acrid smoke across your face like a lovers caress.
