The Raft Race was on the Thames & Severn Canal – starting at Wallbridge, rowing to Capels Mill then turning and paddling back to Wallbridge. It was a revival of Raft Races held here in the 1980s. It was a lovely warm sunny day – luckily for the ones that got wet.
The Clothiers Arms raft had a picnic table, umbrella and beer glasses – outside the Canal Visitor Centre at Wallbridge

Pirates had a good time, but were given a penalty as they had two surfboards, not a raft – are they sinking?
Oh dear, they are in the water
