White Swan annual Raft Race 2017

The time is nigh for infamous White Swan annual raft race; the 2017 event takes place from 12pm on Saturday July 29th!

 The raft race has taken place every year since the late 1970s, and become a Twickenham summer tradition. The race was started to raise money for the RNLI as we have a close relationship with the Teddington branch of this charity.  Contestants have to paddle their self-built rafts across the river to the bank at Ham then back to us in a series of heats until we have a final race to decide a winner. The participants also dress up in fancy dress with a prize given to the best team costume (the outfits are normally of a pretty impressive standard; the construction of rafts can be questionable)
