My thanks to Paul Mullings for this one!
The day dawned misty and fair, and with light winds that improved a great deal as the morning wore on. In the blazing sunshine it turned out to be a grand race. We went out in our little plastic boat and as I had guests on board and was rather busy, my pal Lyn Winter did me the favour of taking these photos. Thanks Lyn!
PS The wonderful Spitalfields Life website was on board one of the competing barges a couple of years back and produced a very nice post about it the event. My thanks to Julian Mannering of Seaforth Publishing for the tip!
If you’ve got serious money – or just like to dream big – this could be the site for you… David Jones Yact Brokerage. My thanks to that well known boat-dreamer Paul Mullings for this one!
