It’ll be “Ahoy Matey” as a collection of rogue Pirates and Buccaneers take to the lake in their handmade vessels in the Mitre 10 Mega Raft Race.

Held in conjunction with Coastguard Queenstown the event promises mayhem, anarchy and skull-duggery on the high waters – all for a great cause. Which raft will survive the course and who will be first to return to shore?  There’s heaps of prizes on offer including $1,000 cash for first place!! Best of all the winner gets the bragging rights and the right to hold the Pirate Ship Trophy until the next race.

Meanwhile kids can get hands-on and have fun in the Mitre 10 Mega Marquee with an Easy As for Kids workshop or Adult DIY Challenge - check out more information here.
