CARDBOARD boats plummeted into the waters of Windermere as part of a family fun day for charity.

Families, schools, businesses and groups of friends entered the Low Wood No Wood boat race gala yesterday in a competition testing how long their cardboard designs could stay afloat.

It was a day of glorious sunshine and plenty of laughs as teams battled the inevitable sinking of their vessels in Low Wood Bay, near Ambleside.

An impressive array of boats entered the race, now in its second year, including some inspired by Noah’s Ark and the Bluebird.

Event organsier, Derek 'Admiral' Armstrong, said: "We couldn’t have wished for better weather. There has been a great crowd of people."

Money raised will go towards the Calvert Trust, who provide outdoor adventure breaks for disabled people.
