  • Short Summary

    River Thames sailing barges race down the river.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "On The Thames. 'Majestic with her swelling sails'. Running before the breeze - sailing barges compete in annual River Race.

    On the River Thames.

    Thames riverboats with their sails unfurled sail along a wide part of the River. Some shots show single barges, some show several. The barges are of the type once used to carry cargo regularly on the River. One of them sails past a large buoy which may have been some kind of finishing post in the race.
