Lake District Boat Club Best Dressed Boat Parade.
Best Dressed Boat Parade
The Lake District Boat Club had their annual Best Dressed Boat Parade
in Bowness Bay and Paddlers for Life, Windermere were there in all their glory.
With everything prepared our intrepid paddlers ventured to the western shores of Windermere seeking calmer waters.
They paddled valiantly for 45 minutes against a presistent headwind braving the challenging
waves from the wake-boarders and their boats.
Finally two laps of Bowness Bay showed them off in their finery to the assembled crowds accompanied by a dozen other dressed boats.
Now with the wind behind them they paddled back to Low Wood Bay in a racing 30 minutes quickly taking ‘Phyllis’ out of the water before hurrying back to the Club House in Bowness to hear the results of the competition.
Of course, yes, yet again, Paddlers for Life have won the shield for the best team entry.
