Busy day on the river

Busy day on the river and the embankment by Putney - over 200 boats competing in the Women's Head of the River Race.

There was a strong wind was blowing from the west, hopefully helping them race down river. But it must have been cold out there and hard work with the choppy water.

But there were only four penalties - for "offensive language", "dangerous disembarking", and two cases of "impeding another crew".

I wonder if there are more penalties when its the men's turn for their Head of River Race? We'll find out in two weeks time!
