This year is the 50th anniversary of the River Stour Trust and our 13th coracle regatta. There will be some races and "have a go" in a relaxed atmosphere. Our event is all about encouraging the public to take part and sharing our knowledge of coracles.

We don't have any refreshments as we are a small event with limited volunteers, so bring a picnic for an afternoon by the river.
