Come for a paddle on the Lea

The White Building

White Post Lane

Hackney Wick

Try your hand at racing a coracle. A coracle is a one-person boat designed by druids and woven from strips of the ash tree. Full instruction is provided. Although contenders race a short distance, the way across the water is never straight forward, as coracles tend to weave and wend like water dodgems.

- This is the 7th annual Coracle Regatta at Hackney Wick, bringing contenders from across the country.

- There is plenty of opportunity for everyone to have a go.

- Prizes for winners.

For those who prefer to relax at the waterside of The White Building, there are refreshments available at the Crate pizza oven and micro-brewery.

Coracle Regatta 2012 is postponed due to Olympic restrictions on the canal.

Thanks to all our loyal coraclers, and everyone who has helped out over the years and Bobby, Tim and everyone at the Eton Mission Rowing Club.
