• Short Summary

    Traditional comic regatta with some highly entertaining races is held at Marlow.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "MARLOW REGATTA - Up-River enthusiasts enjoy a novel and amusing programme.

    Marlow, Buckinghamshire.

    Several shots of the canoe race - men and women are seen paddling with various objects - frying pans, sticks, pans, pots.

    Motor tyres hanging from the bridge on ropes ready for the next race. When canoes reach them, they have to stop and all contestants have to squeeze through the tyre - head first. Various shots of the contestants trying to complete the task - looks harder then it sounds. Crowd cheering.

    Next race is at last as difficult as the previous. In this race, crews must change punts in mid stream - many fall into river.
