What do you remember from 1981? The launch of MTV, Ronald Reagan became the US President, Lady Diana and Prince Charles were married, the wreck of the Titanic was found, and Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a bird at a press conference… but that’s not all, it was the year of the first official Raft Race in Antibes.
The Raft Race Association was created to emulate the Oxford /Cambridge Boat Race but without all the rules! And this memorable, chaotic, totally bonkers, fun race took place at Port Vauban. The race has been held on and off over the last 36 years at Port Vauban in Antibes, with the last one taking place in 2012.
