District Splosh! - Rafting Competition (Sep 2008)
Every two years, all the Scout Troops around Swanley gather at Leybourne Lakes for a raft racing competition.
It looks a lot like a Scrapheap Challenge to start with, but the finished result was ten times better.
And to prove it, Crockenhill Scouts won!
Is this the right way up? What happened to the instructions?
Now was it three wraps and four fraps, or three fraps and two wraps?
Now that’s more like a raft.
Ready to launch
Life jackets and air guitars ready!
In the water
On a lake with four paddles.
A flotilla of rafts close on a lone canoeist.
Two “life-rafts” launch to save a raft in trouble.
It’s great to take part in a fun day out. It’s even better to be the Champions.
