Making the most of it

Sheena's back. We've decided to take a chance on more rain not falling (much), and are heading downstream at a leisurely pace. We managed not to ram any scullers at Maidenhead regatta. A nice man with a megaphone warned us that there was a regatta taking place. As if we hadn't spotted the bright orange buoys in the middle of the river, the big floating signs, the masses of people on the bank, or the hundreds of scullers in the water. Cheers mate! Everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves, and we didn't see any sinkages or collisions. So I guess everything went well.

Waiting for the gates, at Bray Lock.

Tied up, around the corner from the Dorney lake moorings (which were full, anyway). A nice peaceful spot.


  1. Are we going to see you in London guys?

  2. Hi Doug and James. Thanks for your blog posting about Laleham. We're tied up there with 4 ropes, and we've instructed Sumo san to listen out for any late night fiddlings.

    London? We lived and worked there for a number of years, and both feel that we've seen enough of it. Our plans are Hampton Court, Lady Lindsey's Lawn, and then if we are feeling brave enough, venturing onto the Wey.

    I hope you guys have a nice time there though. Cheers...
