As I have previously posted, I've been off sick and spent a lot of time watching the river flow by and the boats on it.
One that caught my eye was the Laser Pico dinghy (above) that had been converted into a rowing boat. I wasn't sure what the story was but took a quick pic and today Chris over at Rowing for Pleasure gave some background.
Apparently it was Robin Morris rowing the Thames from Lechlade to Greenwich, and you can find out more here and here.
Chris mentions how rain can put a damper on things and indeed for this part of his journey Robin must have been getting very wet.
