Low Wood No Wood Cardboard Boat Race

“There is no more efficient way to convince someone you are crazy than to tell them you are building a cardboard boat.” True dat.

Saturday 16th May saw the third annual Low Wood No Wood Cardboard Boat Race happening on the shores of Lake Windermere.  

Local businesses from around the area had all prepared their vessels, made from nothing but cardboard and duct tape. Some of the creations were amazing designs, and brilliantly decorated. Some not so much.

Crew Lakeland Radio were fortunate, as Cllr Ben Berry had offered to make our boat for us! Surely as the event organiser he must know an awful lot about boat design. Surely he wouldn't make us a rubbish one on purpose just to point and laugh as Captain Paul Jordan and First Mate Suzie B sank to the bottom of Windermere...
