The skipper's view
Taking a rest in the engine room ?
They were not really asleep !
The scary stoker !
Tending one of the fires
Sunset on the evening before the Barge Match
Early morning on the day of the Barge Match.
At anchor waiting for the wind.
" CAMBRIA "
" KITTY " with a full complement
" REMINDER "
No danger of being rammed in these conditions !
" XYLONITE "
Still no wind
" THISTLE "
A faint breeze at last
Making headway in the light breeze
The tug " TOUCHSTONE " among the barges

A young guest at the helm
Chatting with guests
Time to bid farewell to our guests
