The RNLI Harbourfest is back again on the 12/13th August 2017 and its looking better than ever!
As usual, all proceeds are being donated to the RNLI in aid of the fantastic work they do out on the sea. And once again – the Fatyak Races will be in full swing on the Saturday over a 1km course based around Minehead Harbour. The fastest paddler for the adults will be in line to win £200 and the fastest combined (youth/adult) will win a Fatyak Hono. What’s more, all equipment and kayaks will be provided – so what are you waiting for?
This year we will go for a beach Le Mans style start where participants run to their boats. This will make for a more spectator friendly event and add a bit of buzz to the harbour – with an inflatable events arch as the start and finish line.
