Thames River Race 17 Sept 05
The blurb says "This is an extraordinary pageant on the River Thames with almost 300 craft taking part from gigs, dragon boats, Hawaiian war canoes, Viking longboats, wherries, whalers and much more. The race goes from Richmond to Island Gardens Greenwich."
Good fun. Taken from Putney Bridge.
I've no idea what this person was doing on the floor...trimming the boat or lessening wind resistance?
