Rockley Watersports and Julia's House are taking over Poole Park Lake for a fantastic, fun day out!
Teams of 4 - 8 will compete in a series of water sport disciplines including kayak endurance, stand-up paddle board racing, floating obstacle course, land based team challenges and a major finale race at the end of the day to establish the trophy winner.
In addition to this, we are holding a Family Fun Day on dry land alongside all the action complete with live music and a party atmosphere. There will be a number of games and activities provided, including a bouncy castle and pedalos, available to hire at a reduced price.
All teams can bring a gazebo to use as a team base and family, friends and colleagues are encouraged to come along and join in the fun. Put your team/company name on your gazebo, wear team shirts or dress up…it is up to you. The park is very busy on a Saturday so expect the waterside event to be a big draw, especially as there are no entry fees for spectators.
Catering will be available from a manned barbecue and a beer/refreshment tent. Teams will be provided a food voucher as part of their team entry and refreshments will be available for purchase by the general public and spectators.
All funds raised will go to Julia’s House, the Dorset and Wiltshire Children’s Hospice to enable us to provide our fantastic respite services to the most deserving of children and their families.
Each team will need to pay a deposit of £50, then it's up to you to get sponsored! We would love for each team to be able to raise at least £600.
Parking is available in the car parks but only for 2 hours so if you want to park all day we recommend parking at the swimming pool car park. You will be able to drive in and unload equipment and gazebos at the event area between 10.00 and 11.00am.
Wetsuits are optional, if you want to wear one they can be obtained cheaply at local supermarkets. We do have some wetsuits available on the day but they will be on a first come first served basis. You will need to bring either water shoes or trainers to wear for some of the events.
