A yearly event on the Tamar called Henley on Tamar where boat crews from schools and clubs race against each other.

Perfect in my mind for the weekly theme. At a distance I always think of mosquitoes when I see these boats on the surface of the water.

Excellent David - maybe the crew in the foreground are men but with a lady cox as her hair gives that away (however some men who have long hair wear it like that!) Crews of two in the distance so I guess not in the same race. Interesting that the name of the event is Henley-on-Tamar - is that because of Henley-on-Thames in the UK?

An all ladies crew John from one of the Church colleges.


The Henley bit is a bit of a take off on the British event.


There is only one race in progress and that is at the far end of the course.
