Lynmouth Raft Race

The Raft Race returns to Lynmouth on 11th Aug 2018, starting at 4:30pm for a couple of hours. Come and join in the fun. Watch the rafts parade through Lynmouth before they are launched into the harbour for the start under the bridge and the race out to a buoy. You can help them on their way by buying flour bombs and pelting them from the bridge and harbour wall. It’s a good laugh and a great way to raise money for charity.
