RNLI Annual Raft Race

Annual RNLI Raft Race at Portpatrick - see report under 'Main Pages'

This is an old established event which was run by Round Table for many years during Portpatrick Lifeboat Week. After the unfortunate demise of Round Table in Stranraer it was agreed with RNLI that we take over from them.

2013 was our 1st year and the event was very successful with around 1,000 spectators watching the 9 male teams and 8 women's teams competing for total prize money of £450 ,much of which was donated back to the RNLI! There was also a collection made which raised a substantial amount for the RNLI as have susequent events.
