HURLOCK, Md. -- Hundreds gathered at the docks behind the Suicide Bridge Restaurant in Hurlock to catch a boat docking tournament.

The water sport hosted by the Chesapeake Cowboys challenges boat captains to get from point A to point B, tying or lassoing poles in a timed competition.

Some of the competitors aren't even old enough drive as several who competed in Sunday's tournament were younger than 14. All participants compete to take home cash prizes and trophies.

Onlookers enjoying the competition say it's great to see kids work so hard on a difficult talent.

"It's just a total redneck kind of fun," said Kim Wanex of Denton who watched the competition with her cousin.  "Especially watching the little ones on the boats, docking. It's just incredible to watch those guys."

The next boat docking events are in Pocomoke City, Salisbury, Crisfield and Ocean City throughout August and September.
