Short canal boat trips will be available throughout most of the afternoon, along with a free ferry taking visitors from one side of the basin to the other.
There will be a Water Safety demonstration by International Rescue Corps, who also provide safety cover for the event.
Throughout the afternoon light refreshments will be available in the Tea Room, plus a Barbecue, an ice cream seller on the Learmonth Gardens side, and ice creams and soft drinks also on sale beside the Tea Room.
Great fun for participants and spectators alike, the main event and highlight of the afternoon is the Cardboard Boat Race. Of course, the particpants want to stay dry and complete the course in record time, but many spectators enjoy it more when boats and crews sink in spectacular fashion. It is after all a “Fun Day”. Entries are always welcome and a LUCS Fun Day Cardboard Boat Race Entry Form is available for download.
