Acorn Raft Race

Every year, Ripon has a raft race on the canal organised by, and in aid of, Scuba Diving for All, a local charity which provide training and assistance in scuba diving to people with special needs.  Our old offices were just next to Ripon canal but for one reason or another we did not enter the race while we were still based there.

In 2009 however, at fairly short notice (three weeks!) we were able to build a raft during our lunchbreaks.  The barrels and planks from a pallet were sourced by Richard, and some rope that was in the store room.  We contacted our local marina asking about hiring some paddles, but they said we could borrow them for nothing as long as we stuck a 'Borougbridge Marina' sticker on the side.  They also kindly allowed us to practice in the sheltered water of the marina at lunchtime and after work one Friday.
