Midsummer Island Adventure: Whirlpool off to Starboard… Full Speed Ahead! Guide

Genshin Impact 1.6 launched on June 8, 2021, launching the Midsummer Island Adventure storyline featuring Klee, Jean, and Barbara.

Act II's challenge, Whirlpool off to Starboard...Full Speed Ahead! has players navigating different Waverider courses in an attempt to collect insignias and complete each course within a set amount of time.

It is a bit more difficult than it looks due to the loose handling of the Waverider.
