Southport District Cubs held their annual Water Fun Day on Sunday 9th July. Overall 180 Cubs attended, the largest number yet for this type of event, split over a Morning and Afternoon session having fun on Kayaks, Sailing, Bell Boating, Barrel Racing and pretending to be Vikings on a Viking Long Boat. The Long Boat was a special addition for this year's event. Each Pack had painted a shield that could be used on the side of the Long Boat. The Long Boat itself was a converted Dragon boat, with a new Dragon head and mast & sail.
