Lynmouth Raft Race

14th July 2019

This fabulous free annual event will bear witness to dozens of handmade raft boats take to the sea in a frantic battle to the buoy and back – and beware racers, spectators will be armed with flour bombs! The rafts will gather at the coach park before parading through Lynmouth to the sea and the starting line before being pelted with flour bombs (naturally).

The route follows down the River Lyn and is approximately 500/600 yards and back. Awards will be presented for the first to finish, best constructed raft, best-dressed raft and the highest sponsored crew (plus a prize for the first to sink).
