LOCKS 2018 - family festival - Bydgoszcz / Poland
Blood, sweat and tears, joy and disappointment, adrenaline, effort and imprints on the hands. These words could be used to describe bottle boat races that took place on the Bydgoszcz Canal as part of the family festival "Lock 2018" organized by the Council of Osole District.
4 teams A took off and the battle was played by a knockout system up to 2 wins. Drawing who with whom, short test on the water and start. The distance was not long, about 150 m, but that does not mean it was easy. And the involvement of the players was evidenced by abrasions and imprints on the starting hands.
The semi-finals ended with quite quick victories, but in the final, an additional 3rd race was needed to settle. The team won, which was created for 5 minutes. before qualifying. And to the surprise of the numerous fans gathered, but probably also their own they raised a magnificent cup on the main stage. Other teams also received symbolic prizes.
We also took the opportunity to remind and invite the participants of the festival to the 11th edition of "Ster na Bydgoszcz", which will take place in less than a month.
What spectators watched today was a foretaste of what awaits us on June the 24th on Mill Island. 18 teams will start in self-designed and built fancy constructions in THE GREAT BOTTLE RACE.
I would also like to thank very much Tomek Isajasz for his commitment and help in organizing today's races.
