Arundel Bathtub Race

A man called Martin Harvey came into my office the other day to tell me about an event I never knew existed...The Arundel Bathtub Race. Here's a little bit of information about it....

This year the Bathtub Race has moved from Arundel to a venue with better facilities than ever:

Steeped in bath racing history, the RNLI slipway in Littlehampton used to host over 120 teams each year (yes really!) and will see paddle powered mayhem return on Sunday August 24th.   

Homemade vessels will splash their way up river past Littlehampton Marina before rounding a buoy and returning to the historic harbour.

Entrants travel from as far away as Kent, Dublin and even a church group from Brazil!  People have even re-arranged their wedding so they can be there!


I think if anyone is in the area on the Sunday of the Bank Holiday weekend, they should come down and show these brave competitors some support.
