To celebrate Riverfest, Southampton's own REAP Systems are offering eight pairs of tickets to local people for an exclusive river jaunt on Riverfest Day – Saturday, May 27, 2017. You and a friend will hop on board at St Denys Boat Club in Priory Avenue and take a gentle turn along the river - about half an hour.

REAP's world leading electric battery propulsion technology means your ride will be quiet and smooth with no stinky fumes.

REAP don’t usually offer rides to the public so this is a very rare chance to experience this amazing technology - as well as enjoy the sights and sounds of the river from the water.
