About 2011 Children First Ness Raft and Duck Race

 

The Inverness and Black Isle Photography Group were asked to the annual Great River Ness Raft Race. It is one of Inverness City's most colourful events. Teams of four are invited to build their own rafts and race them down the River Ness.

 

The races are divided into two categories: Commercial and Club. All entrants are encouraged to decorate their rafts and there is a prize for the most original and humorous entry. The best decorated rafts then form a procession around the City Centre and back to the River Ness for the start of the races.

 

The races start at the Fisherman's Carpark beside Bught Park and race down river to the finish which is at the Greig Street pedestrian bridge.

Rafts are taken out of the river at Friars Shott, near the Waterfront Bar. The Waterfront very kindly provides soup and sandwiches to all competitors.
