Around �500 was raised for charity amongst the chaos of this year's Salhouse Broad Raft Race.
Now in its fourth year, the annual event was raising money for bereaved children's charity Nelson's Journey and conservation projects at Salhouse Broad, with the money raised being split between the two.
The fun event on Sunday afternoon featured teams of four racing against each other to a floating pontoon, a distance of around 50m, to retrieve a water balloon.
The teams then raced their rafts the 50m back to the beach to burst their balloon and clock their time.
This year's event saw 12 teams entered, thanks to a stag party entering four teams into the event.
It was the Poly Pirates team who emerged victorious in both the main race and the Barbarians Challenge, with The Fossicks claiming the wooden spoon.
A barbecue, drinks and musical entertainment from the Norfolk Wherry Brass Band then brought the day to a close.

Salhouse Broad ranger, Tobi Baker, said: 'There was a bit of a cross-wind blowing across the Broad which makes things interesting because it pushes everyone off course.
'But eventually the clouds cleared and the sun came out so we had a great afternoon.'
