These dinghies at Majuro's dinghy dock are preparing for the "backwards dinghy race," a grueling event where outboards must be operated in reverse and competitors are not penalized for unethical tactics such as bumping and throwing water. The locals thought it was crazy but the cruisers called it fun!
