Ireland’s super seaweed raft race

[UK] Teams participate in a seaweed race pushing a two tonne seaweed bundle known as “climin” from the sea to the harbour finish line during the Cruinniu na mBad (gathering of the boats) regatta in Kinvara, Ireland August 21, 2017.

A climin is a mass of seaweed weighing several tons which has been hand-cut and bound with ropes; floating on the water surface, not unlike an iceberg, it is propelled forward with long poles by two competitors standing on each climin. — “Its worth going to the festival just to see this event !! ”
