The Ship Inn Pub in Langstone Harbour, originally a mill, recently hosted their annual raft race. This event is historic and this lovely coastal pub has organised this great day for several years now. The race is all about getting people working together as a team by building rafts and trying to complete a short assault course without sinking.
The weather was glorious and hundreds of onlookers supported the event. Team included local clubs such as local dive club Blacksheep Divers.
This nautical themed event not only boasts a real sense of community but encourages locals to get out and about and enjoy the amazing setting that is on their doorstep.
Racers pelted each other with water bombs and clumps of seaweed and children took to the water to attack teams with loaded water pistols. The atmosphere was fantastic and the stunning waterside setting was perfect and enjoyed by all.
The event will happen again next year in July and everybody is welcome to sign up and take part. Contact the Ship Inn for more details on upcoming events. You can find out more about the Ship Inn on their website www.shiplangstone.co.uk
