Aboard Cambria for the Medway barge match

Read about Cambria here, and about the Medway Barge Match here. Our new friend photographer Rob Powell was on board and I guess he may put some of his shots on his weblog, On the Thames.

Spot the Lady of the Lea stuck on an island. I hope she and her folks are all right…

PS – While we were racing, East Coast ditch crawling maven Nick Ardley was attending the launch of a new steel built Thames sailing barge, the Blue Dolphin. They do say with her smooth bottom, she’ll be quick and could be an interesting contender in barge racing in future years… See Nick’s weblog piece here.

  1. Excellent photographs Gavin – as always!
    I’m intrigued as to how the Lady of the Lea ‘invaded’ Darnet Ness so dramatically. Grapevine has been quiet on this…
