Rye Raft Race on 17th July

Rye Raft Race

 

 

 

 

 

Stay at Rye Bay Bed and breakfast and enjoy the thrills and spills!

The race takes place this year on Sunday 17th July, starting at 1.15pm and rafts assembling from noon. The course will be the same as previous years,  consisting of three laps on the Rother downstream from the A259, New Road bridge.

The fete on The Salts will start at noon and will have all the usual attractions, such as a BBQ, beer tent, ice-creams, live music, children’s go-carts and rides and many other stalls and side-shows.

Entries are welcomed from any schools, colleges, companies, pubs or organisations plus two additional classes are being introduced this year. This will ensure that rafts ranging from a few beer barrels strapped together stand as much chance of winning a class as the large multiple crewed teams!
