Bude at War Event – How Bude Sea Pool Played It’s Part….

September 16, 2023 @ 08:00 - 17:00

Bude at War Ranger Relay Rescue

Bude Sea Pool is supporting the Bude at War weekend where our town remembers the 2nd & 29th Battalion US  Rangers stationed here to train for the DD Landings of WW2. Bude Sea Pool was used for their cliff training as well as being used by the Rangers to practice wading/ swimming.

 

Unfortunately, we cannot install a zip line from the cliffs to the Pool as they did back then but we have the next best thing…

 

Take part  or come and support 16 teams of ‘Rangers’ as they paddle the length of the Pool against another team of 4 ‘Rangers’. The knockout competition will culminate in the Ranger Relay Recue winners being crowned!

 

All entry fees will be donated to Bude Surf Veterans.

 

FoBSP volunteers will be serving American and 1940’s inspired refreshments – hot dogs, cakes and more! All proceeds from this will go to FoBSP.

 

To book your team of 4 please contact Deb poolmanager@budeseapool.org
