  • Short Summary

    Competition involving canoeing to a river bank, grabbing a girl then canoeing back again.

  • Description

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Not a real one, but the kind you can have in your river or waterside sports. Canoes just dash for the bank..."

    M/S of girls in summer dresses and swimsuits standing on a river bank. Men canoe towards the bank and jump out of their boats. "The aim is to find "the girl" (the correct one) all jump back into the canoe, and get away quickly -"

    The girls jump into the canoes and the boys (and some of the girls) start canoeing. "When the game quickens, then the elopers' troubles commence!" One of the canoes gets a bit waterlogged and time is wasted tipping the water out. They start to row off again then almost capsize.
