Cardboard boat race, May Term 2013
Gaffer Maria (1st division)
Success seemed to be largely due to constructing a boat that was actually rigid, using a punt-pole to supplement puddles, and pushing off at a good time.
A solid race with primary propulsion coming from James' craftily procured punt pole and secondary help from paddles wielded by Dougall, Daisy and me. The start was a bit random - we put the boat on the water and shot off the moment we saw another crew begin the race and tried successfully to overtake them. The egg fit nicely in its egg holder, a spare gaffer tape reel and we dodged the competition on the return leg to arrive victorious. St Edmund's May Ball, thank you very much!
