The William Tilley Lodge in association with Ocean Village Proudly Present

The 2016 RAOB Charity Cardboard Boat Race

Every year Ocean Village Gibraltar in partnership with the William Tilley Lodge of the RAOB organise a thrilling charity Cardboard Boat Race.

This year, the event kicked off a weekend of water-based madness in aid of Autism Support & the GBC Open Day Appeal. Large crowds gathered at the Ocean Village Marina to watch the excitement, as crews battled boldly to navigate the course without sinking – a feat not all managed to achieve!

The standard of boats and crews was simply breath-taking, with a huge amount of effort & imagination being shown by all entrants. The RAOB Cardboard Boat Race seems to get bigger and better every year & the local support is quickly making this a very popular event on the annual Gibraltar calendar.

This year’s race results were as follows:


Junior’s Race

Senior’s Race
