Video of a regatta at Horning, 1908

[ad name=”intheboatshed-post”]

Norfolk’s local ITV station has an interesting scrap of film shot at Horning regatta in 1908. One striking point is that the scene is very different from the one we know today – not least because it’s so devoid of trees.

Dig the steam-powered pleasure boat, elegant racers and smart standing-lug rigged sailing boats, not to mention cruising boats very like the types still sailed in the area today.
