THERE were some T-Birds and Pink Ladies but the Viking Queens triumphed in the end.
It was a fierce battle to be crowned the winner of the sixth Fareham Creek raft race which takes place next to the Castle in the Air pub.
All nine teams got a soaking on Saturday afternoon but didn’t mind as it was in aid of a great cause – Gosport and Fareham In-shore Rescue Service (Gafirs).
Chris Smith, the landlord of the pub, said: ‘It was an absolutely amazing afternoon.
‘The weather was appalling but it was a brilliant day.
‘A team of ladies who entered for the first time dressed as Viking Queens stole the cup. They battled against the car from Grease.
‘The place turns into a rock festival in the evening with great bands.
‘Gafirs are all volunteers and it’s all down to their skill.
‘We’re hoping to raise a lot of money but we couldn’t have done it without the help of Fairweather Marine and Dave Clarke Haulage.’
