There is a lighthouse but not much water at Cape Clear, but that's not stopping the pupils at its primary school who are building a fleet of yachts.
The pupils, and community members, will race the land yachts on Sunday on the local oval in the biennial Cape Clear Inland Slownet Yacht Race.
Held every two years on a Sunday close to St Patrick's Day, school principal Lachlan Day said the event was a fun way to bring the community together.
"The main aim of the day is to get the community together. It's great to have the school at the heart of the community out here and try to emphasise the spirit of our small community."
The children have used their technology and design studies to create the yachts, which are made from electrical conduit and joiners. In the coming days they will decorate the yachts and sails during visual art lessons.
The pupils will also put in some land sailing practice, and hone their skills at other competitions that will be held on the day including golden gumboot throwing and water balloon throwing.
