In 2018 the Ironbridge Coracle Trust presents the Coracle Regatta, at the Ironbridge Rowing Club, Buildwas Road.
From 1.00pm to 4.00pm there will be a series of races for novice, intermediate and expert coracle racers, including Polo, Fish Kebabs and 360 degrees. The ever popular Have a Go sessions are available from 11.00am
The audience sits on the steps of the Rowing Club – at least one person per race ended up in the river!
Entertainment and refreshments on site included barbecue, ice-cream, tea and coffee, craft stalls from 11.00pm.
To enter a coracle event you just turn up on the day and register your name at the entry stand. All welcome — you don’t have to bring a coracle, as there will be spare coracles available for most races.
£2.00 car parking fee (proceeds go to local charities)
