Three hundred and thirty boats, over two thousand competitors, and the fastest boats completing the 21 mile course through central London in a little over 2 hours (that's 15km per hour, helped by a very strong tide).  Imagine a race like this on the Huon.

Seven St Ayles skiffs took part - read Alex Jordan's report with pictures on the Scottish Coastal Rowing site
