The 2016 Swale match is this weekend!

It /is/ quite a spectacle – and well worth watching from a boat afloat or from the land – the point at Oare Marshes is a good spot.

A small collection of photos from a weekend on the Swale. The sailing barge in the dawn shot is Orinico, and I have to say that dawn very much made up for having to be up at 3am to catch the tide!
