• Short Summary

    Hydrogliders are taken for a ride over the shallow waters of the River Severn near Bewdley.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'RIDING THE RIVER!'

    Bewdley, Worcestershire.

    Various shots of a Davis Hydroglider taking some people for a ride on the River Severn - it looks like quite a picturesque area. The vessel passes two men in swimsuits paddling up to their knees in the water - the Hydroglider is the only boat that could travel over these shallow waters.

    We then see a sports hydroglider whizz by. Two of these hydrogliders are driven over the water at speed. Good point of view shot from one of them.
