Hi Gezginruh & Steve,

I am happy that you enjoyed this bit of fun, and I thank you for your wonderful comments! This race is a village tradition, where the throwing of flour and water from spectators and participants is acceptable (and encouraged). This year the theme was cartoon characters. Give these guys their credit, this was about the best engineered raft I have seen for a long time.

Best Wishes Peter

Hello again Sarah! You are right, this is all about having a laugh, and getting wet. Of course it is all for charity. Yes, the raft crews do retaliate, it's all in the game! I'm happy that you like it. Thank you!!

Best Wishes Peter

Super action shot, Peter. Great light.

Hi Whoelius, Thank you for you nice words! Yes, this is right at the start of the race, and it is all action to paddle, defend yourself from attack, and retalliate. A nice way to spend a summer saturday!

Best Wishes Peter

Hi Mark,

Thank you very much for your visit, and sorry for late response, I've been away on hols again. While not being a big fan of water sports, I did manage to see a more serious activity on water, maybe for next time!

Best Wishes Peter
