    Various shots of army cadets taking part in a canoe race from Reading Rowing Club to Henley Bridge. First we see the Class A single canoes, then Class B double canoes racing against one another.

    General view of Sonning Lock. One of the first to arrive there is a single canoe from AAS Harrogate. The canoeist lifts his craft from the water and walks round the lock.
