Wivenhoe Town Regatta
2024 Raft Race

The raft race takes place annually at the Wivenhoe Regatta. The spectacular, crowd-pleaser, pits teams against each other over a course in front of spectators lined along the quayside. Competitors create their own craft, with the objective of staying afloat for the duration of the race.

A case of beers for the winners and the Raft Race Shovel prize for the year is awarded.
