Congratulations to the 2019 World Barge Pulling Championships winners East Yorkshire Beer Company

The 2019 World Barge Pulling Championships

Barge Pullers from around the world braved a rainy day on Beverley Beck on Sunday 29th September 2019, working in teams of 4 to pull themselves into the record books. Male, female and mixed teams competed against each other aiming to gain the highest honour in the world of barge pulling.

The barge Syntan was pulled from a standing start at the head of the Beck for a distance of 200 metres - fastest team winning.

All competitors were rewarded with specially designed medallions. Members of the winning team received Championships cups. In addition a perpetual trophy will be engraved with the winning team’s name and held on the Syntan.

The Society is most grateful to Teamac our marine paint suppliers who sponsor the event so generously.

The Barge Pull Raffle was drawn on 4th October 2019. Check our facebook page for winning ticket numbers.
