The 5th Catsfield Boat Race and Family Fun Day
14th June 2020 will see the running of the 5th annual Catsfield Boat Race and Family Fun Day.
2019 was another great event raising over £2000 for local charities.
The race was fantastic with 14 teams of four racing around the village carrying homemade boats.
The 2019 Family Fun day was a great success with loads of events including:
- the children's boat race, which was even more competitive than the adults!
- a giant assault course, football competition, kids makeup
- pipers and drummers, stilt walker and two live bands
- BBQ, beer, Pimms and wine, cream teas, kids tuckshop
The 2020 Boat Race
We are changing the format of the Catsfield Boat Race to make it more fun and more accessible.
This year the race will be a simple dash down the main road with a few obstacles to navigate.
Hopefully competitors will appreciate the shorter course without the gruelling slog up Church Lane.
This year it's all down hill baby!!!
In further change the races will be for 2 man boats (rather than 4). Time to challenge your former team-mates!
There will be an individually timed qualifying dash for each boat. Following this will be heats of several boats based on qualifying times, at this point obstacles will be introducted!!
The final will be raced between the heat winners.
Boats will be judged during the day using a Facebook poll and the winner will receive the prestigious award of Best Boat.
So please come and join us on 14th June 2020 for a great day out.
