The rules to the competition are simple – be the fastest to dock a boat stern-in by lassoing four pilings with large hoops. The winner takes home bragging rights.

The competitions started 50 years ago on the Eastern Shore of Chesapeake Bay. Run by Chesapeake Cowboys, the events draw in hundreds of fans who come to not only admire the slick piloting, but also to enjoy the music and food.
