Crazy model cardboard boat regatta August 2020

This year, in order to comply with government guidance on social distancing we are not inviting crowds of people to join us on Bideford Quay but are organising a model cardboardboat race which will be streamed on social media.

This is a fabulous community event that the Rotary Club of Bideford are proud to continue to organise. There are heaps of photos of the last few years' Water Festivals on Facebook if you have been involved and want to look for picture of yourself.
