Raft Race 2017

19th August 2017

On 19th August 2017, Fairlie will be hosting the return of the historic Raft Race during the Fairlie Gala weekend. Teams consisting of 2 or more people will race their self-built crafts along a section of Fairlie beach. We hope the event will be well supported by local and visiting teams.

Fairlie has a proud maritime culture and heritage and this years raft race will be centred around a “Creatures of the Sea” theme. The rafts are to be constructed from recycled materials.

The winning team will have many honours bestowed upon them and will hold the highly coveted ‘Champions’ title until the next race.

The number of teams racing will ultimately be dictated by the level of safety and boat cover. Get your registration in asap and start organising your raft. You don’t want to be left high and dry!

Overall – 1st Place “Champions”

Runner Up – 2nd Place
