An energetic day of swimming, mad-cap raft racing and the lorry pull kicks off today at 10am with the Dinosaur 10k race.
Deal Tri hosts the 1,000m open water swim race from the Downs Sailing Club to Deal Pier from 1.30pm. Registration is in front of the club from 1pm. Late entry is permitted if there is space. Fee is £6.
The raft race, at 1.45pm, brings the real fun on the sea – and on the shore line for those watching the spectacle. The 750 metre challenge leaves Downs Sailing Club on The Strand, for Deal Pier at 2.15pm subject to tide. Entry is £10 per raft. For full rules, see the programme.
Beach Street will be cordoned off for the annual lorry pull. The 30 metre timed event always attracts crowds in their hundreds. It starts at 3.30pm with booking taking place from 2.30pm. Entry is £10 per team (seniors) and £5 junior teams.
The Trophy Shop Hop Scotch Championship will start opposite Deal Pier from 1pm with a competition for under-eights and under-11s.
