It was great to see the return of The Great Bembridge Paper Boat Race on the shores of Brading Haven Yacht Club. The boat race is part of the Bembridge Harbour family fun weekend.Which saw regatta racing with Bembridge Sailing Club, sand castle competitions, beach games and more.
The Great Bembridge Paper Boat Race on Saturday saw an amazing and varied selection of Paper Boats. There were three races for different age groups and the skill and imagination of the builders is remarkable. This is particularly true as Xavier Adams who was only 4 years old was the prize winner for the first race.! The second Race was for ‘Juniors’ between 9 and 14 years old for this which again saw some ingenious design, building skills and colourful boats. The third race was for ‘Seniors’ from 15 upwards and we saw quality and imagination that went into these boats in this group with some stiff competition.
After racing everyone enjoyed the prize giving and a BBQ . All money raised will go to the Kissy Puppy Charity that Bembridge Harbour supports for this event.
