Raft Race Champions

In a thrilling series of races consisting of collisions, over taking and neck-and-neck finishes our team of Scouts gave it their all and sailed to victory at the annual Southampton District Raft Race.

Did we have the best raft? Well, it survived 6 races. The ‘Britannic’ served us well.
Were our square-lashing the strongest after weeks of practice? Absolutely.
Were our home-made paddles the best in the world? Of course!
Did the Jelly Babies and Cadbury’s Fingers give us the extra boost we needed in the final? It was either that or all the cheering (and dog barking) from from our supporters on the riverside.

Our victory is shared between the winning team, our other scouts who hand build the paddles and everyone who came along to support on the day cheering ‘2nd to none’ for today we trulySouthampton Scouts Race Race 2014 Woodmill are.
