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.
At certain points, as here, it seemed as though the entire width of the river was covered by boats!
