We drove into Portrush last Saturday to witness all the fools jumping into the water for a charity raft race, among those Stendhal represented their festival in bright yellow with the Panda running around the audience. One thing I learned from this day is that Portrush are not easily impressed by hula hooping, acrobatics or juggling however we did our bit to try and encourage their performances.
Quite a lot of the rafts made it to the end although it was a laugh witnessing a huge steel tube sinking straight to the bottom upon entrance, a polystyrene raft inefficient to float the right way up and a variety of great costumes. I even saw the Stig from Top Gear!
