Barb Dawson and David Budd report: 

'Taking place on the Thames last weekend - through London, from Millwall to Richmond, this 21 mile race had over 300 boats taking part.  Boats included Montagu whalers, Cornish pilot gigs and Thames skiffs - as well as St Ayles skiffs.  Accurate handicapping means that diverse boats made it to the top 3.  This years overall winner was……..drum roll…..a St Ayles skiff (named Felton Flyer) in a time of 2 hours 32 minutes.  Second place a Hawaiian outrigger.  Third place, an Essex skiff.'
