EDEN, Md. - The Wicomico Yacht Club hosted its Second Annual Boat Docking Competition Sunday afternoon. 

Dozens of so-called Chesapeake Cowboys competed in the competition, including Scott Jones, captain of the Elaina Scott. 

"[The competition is about] spending time together -- good quality time together with your buddies, but a lot of bragging rights is what it is," said Jones.

"It gets pretty heated sometimes. Sometimes, there might be an argument, but it doesn't last very long. At the end, we're all friends."

The rules of the competition were simple: parking a boat into the dock in the fastest amount of time. 

Thirteen boats took to the creek today for the chance to beat the clock.

Spectators said the competition provided the perfect Sunday entertainment.

"There's a lot of energy here. As you can hear, lots of people dancing, having fun, jumping in the water. It's been really awesome and really positive fun day," said Mackayla Malone of Salisbury.

The boat docking competition was also about tradition. Jones's father and son joined him for the big day.

"I started out when I was [my son's] age, and now he's starting out, and now [my father's] been boat docking for how many years? 30 years. We started out on Crisfield. It's only gotten bigger. Now we go to about 18-19 boat dockings a year," said Jones.

The boat docking competition takes place six months after a fire caused $500,000 worth of damage to the Wicomico Yacht Club. 

The money raised from the fundraiser will go toward the yacht club and local fire companies.
