6 December 2013 Last updated at 13:01 GMT

Presenter Mark Beaumont meets a group of model boat builders enjoying some friendly competition in the lagoon of the South Pacific island of Tarawa in Kiribati.

Mark discovered that the proud tradition of sailing forms a large part of the activities of island life, and that racing these model craft isn't as easy as it looks.

The Queen's Baton Relay enjoyed two days in Kiribati before continuing the journey around the Commonwealth in the Cook Islands.
