Sink or swim for team Start Tech
On Friday 8th September 2023 Start Tech take on The Coracle World Championships!
Our motley crew may have an extensive lack of boating know-how but that won’t stop us going for gold!
We have a feeling Chris’s 100m swimming badge will come in handy though!
We want to bring home this year’s championship however, we have an even more important mission in mind.
We want to bring home this year’s championship however, we have an even more important mission in mind, raising donations and supporting Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that is close to the heart of so many.
We know Macmillan does amazing work and we want to show them our appreciation for their efforts.
So, let’s make some waves and raise some donations!
What is the Coracle World Championship?
The Coracle World Championships race takes place on a Friday afternoon in September, on the River Severn at the Pengwern Boat Club, Shrewsbury.
Up to 48 Teams, comprising four people in each team, relay-race across the river in coracles – single person, circular boats with one oar to steer and paddle.
After several heats, quarter finals and semi finals, the winners of the final race become World Champions.
You can come down and witness the team sink or swim on the day, it’s free for all to spectate.
