A very wet Great River Race

Today was the Great River Race, and it was definitely a day for umbrellas, and as can be seen from the photo above.

The GRR involves around 300 rowing boats of all types and sizes racing up the Thames from Docklands to Richmond, a total of 21 miles. Even with the tide with them, that is one long row, and if it rains a very wet row:

A big Huzzah! Hurrah! to Chris and all the Langstone Cutters on Gladys seen here pulling well through Putney:

Looking forward to hearing how well they did.

Thanks very much Cap'n. We clipped five minutes off last year's time and retained both the Codgers' Cup and the Tupperware Trophy.
