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.
