2016 World Barge Pulling Championships: Congratulations to Teamac Tempest.

The World Barge Pulling Championships

Barge pullers from around the world are invited to gather on Beverley Beck on September 24th 2017 to work in teams of 4 to pull themselves into the record books. Teams of men, women or mixed are welcome to compete against each other and gain the highest honour in the world of barge pulling.

The barge Syntan will be pulled from a standing start at the head of the Beck for a distance of 200 metres. The fastest time wins.

All competitors will be rewarded with a specially designed medallion with members of the winning team receiving Championships cups. In addition a perpetual trophy will be engraved with the winning team’s name and held on the Syntan until the 2018 Championships.

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