The 2013 Porthleven Raft Race

Sunday saw the annual Porthleven Raft Race take place after a two week delay due to poor weather. As ever, the turnout for the race was brilliant with some really creative rafts taking to the water. I was part of the Porthleven Community Group raft and probably like other participants, the first ten minutes afloat was critical as only then will you know if your raft is ‘seaworthy.’ I am pleased to say no raft sunk during the race.

Well done to all who took part in the race and those who helped construct the crafts.

Here is a selection of pictures from the event:
