The start of the Three Rivers Race at Horning
I’d just like to say how much we enjoyed Keep Turning Left Dylan Winter’s film of the Three Rivers Race on the Norfolk Broads.
It’s classic Dylan stuff: the rivers, broads and boats look fabulous, his photography and framing are as wonderful as ever, and of course there’s also the usual opinionated and entertaining commentary, including a good mobo rant. It’s a shame you can’t get this kind of thing on the telly.
It costs $4.99 a quarter to sign up to see this stuff via Dylan’s website, and I think it’s money very well spent. However, his enthusiasm for the Three Rivers is so great he’s made his film available for free on the front page of Keep Turning Left. Catch it while you can…

Troubled as I am by continuing problems with our Internet connection – please get on with it Plusnet and BT, it’s been more than two weeks now! – I can’t actually look at Dylan Winter’s videos of the start of the Three Rivers Race this year.
Still, I’m more than sure they’re well worth seeing; those starts must be a sight in themselves, and it’s difficult to imagine any where else in the UK where one could see so many well kept traditional craft on the water in one place. Dylan would like information about the boats in the videos, if anyone can help.
If he was watching the start of the Three Rivers, he must have been in the area at the same time we were at Barton Turf, enjoying the good company of the HBBR meet there this year, and sailing the Barton Activity Centre’s boats on Barton Broad.
Now, though, apart from getting a decent Internet service, I want to hear how he gets on sailing around the North Norfolk coast, the Wash and the southern end of the long Lincolnshire coast.
