    Rowing at Henley for the Royal Henley Regatta

  • Description

    Item title reads: " Royal Henley Regatta. Mixed weather, and results at World's greatest River Festival."

    Henley,

    M/S rowers at Henley, with two sets of eight pulling away up river. From a high angle we see a the two boats moving toward the finish line. Spectators and crews wait by the banks in the sun. Later we look at the same scene but everyone has their umbrellas up against a downpour of rain. Two teams row past and cross the finish line. The sun is out again and so are the parasols. There is a high angle shot of single sculls. Teams of eight lower their boats into the water and carry oars.
