Tresco Raft Race

 Last Sunday was Tresco Raft Race...
Following from last years successful day this year was
also very good with 13 rafts turning out including 2 from Bryher.

Various materials were used some more successful than others, but they were all new this year.
The rafts had to get from New Grimsby quay to the Flying Boat Club slipway..
 A good start was had by most entrants..
 Moored boats proved to be tricky obstacles to navigate past
And inevitiably you are going to get wet!
A great time was had by all and it there were no problems at all.

In fact it was so good that it will take place next year again.
Probably same time same place more or less!
