Not really a festival but a fun Cambridge tradition anyway. Apparently it’s a post exams and post bumps stress relief thing? It’s exactly what it sounds like; teams make a boat out of cardboard, tape and glue and ‘race’ along the cam. Or sink and swim… one of the two.
There were some pretty impressive boats considering.
It was hilarious to watch, what started off as a race ended up as a ‘last man in his boat’ as boats started capsizing or being sunk. I loved it.
And yes that’s a frying pan she’s using to row 🙂
