The Great River Race, London, Sept 2012
Competitors taking part in London's Great River Race, on Saturday, 15 September 2012.
The event is open to pretty much all man-powered craft, from small two-oared boats right up to Dragon Boats.
The race starts at London's Docklands at Canary Wharf, and follows a 21 mile (yes, twenty-one mile!) course, up-river to Ham in Surrey!
My thanks to Westminster Boating Base for allowing me on to their jetty (in suitable buoyancy gear) to get this viewpoint
