Chris Perkins photographs the Thames Traditional Boat Festival

Award winning boat builder and early supporter of the Scottish Coastal Rowing movement Chris Perkins has been in touch with photos from a trip to the Thames Traditional Boat Festival. It’s great to hear from him after some time, and good too to see that the event has bounced back from its difficulties a little while ago.

To see more of his photos of the event click here. (You can also find your way to his other Flickr galleries – he has an impressive collection of photos.)

Here’s what he said about it: ‘This was the first time a trip south has coincided with the event. It’s rather different from the usual gatherings I attend, but there were some gorgeous boats to be seen as well as a few old friends. Feel free to extract anything you would like to use. Trust all is well with you and yours… ‘

We’re fine thanks Chris. I hope you’re doing well too, and many thanks for the photos! (Btw, these remain Chris’s copyright, soi please ask permission before ‘borrowing’ his photos for another website.)
