100+ pedalers, 30+ boats, 3 winners...
To promote pedal power as an environmentally friendly way to get around Wellington, Adventure Wellington is organising the funniest annual race ever: the Annual Pedal Boat Race!
Boats will enter the lagoon and position themselves for 10 minutes for the starting line. When the signal is given, boats will race to the Marina where each team has to collect a ribbon, and back to the start line for victory, great prizes and respect of your fellow adventurers.
Remember, it's not about speed...it's all about style! Dress appropriately! Water guns allowed :-)
