Newlyn Raft Race in glorious sunshine!




Tom and several thousand others...


made the most of some Sunday sunshine as a dozen rafts battled it out round the short course - though even that proved a challenge for some...


watched by a huge crowd...


teams from local businesses like the Newlyn Filmhouse and the once invincible Newlyn Meadery Maids were scorched by a top crew from the legendary Star Inn winning by a proper Cornish country mile...


some however, came to grief just yards from the beach...


in time to carry their 4th placed Oscar ashore...


and drag the Tahitian raft up the beach...


watched over by the Penlee lifeboat and its smaller...


brothers!
