The Cardboard Boat Race took place during September and featured a plethora of craft mostly made from cardboard. I confess that I am not fully au fait with the rules, but I am pretty sure that wrapping the cardboard completely in duct tape is not entirely within the spirit of the event.
Needless to say, these generally faired much better than their flimsier counterparts.
This picture is not of the small children (because they are small children) in their very brightly coloured craft, but of the reflections of the pontoon bridge, under which they finally capsized. So close!
