BUILD YOUR CREW, GRAB YOUR PADDLES AND GO FOR GLORY!
Enter a team and help raise money to give Wizzybug powered wheelchairs to kids under 5.
Fancy dress optional!
Up to 11 people will paddle each 30′ boat with a drummer up front beating time and a helm at the tail steering a straight course.
Who can take part?
The minimum age is 16 and no previous experience is necessary, just plenty of team spirit.
Crews must comprise of 8-10 paddlers plus a drummer. Crews can be mixed, all female or all male and organisations may enter more than one crew. After all, doesn’t everyone like a bit of friendly competition in the workplace?
Crews will battle it out over the 200m course, watched by crowds of spectators.
What you’ll be raising money for
All the funds raised will go towards our Wizzybug Loan Scheme which provides fun, powered wheelchairs to disabled children under 5 in the UK.
