Created by Harold II and Emperor Karl Con VonKresser in 1867 in an effort to maintain peace and promote cooperation between the two countries. During the Prush-Antiford War, the games did not take place, but were reinstated shortly after the revolution. There are still some bitter feelings on both sides.
The games are scheduled to occur every 3 years. Among the contests are an endurance test of how long the ship may remain airborne, an altitude race, and the much anticipated Canyon race. Due to the invention of powered propulsion, the games have been split into powered and sailed categories.
