Camford Race Day
Cheers from the crowd brought us out on deck to enjoy the racing.
This may not be the River Thames, these may not be the eights from Oxford and Cambridge, in fact there is nothing faintly OxBridge at all, but the fitness, practice sessions and dedication of the teams definitely make them CamFord.
Rain did not stop the excitement of the first race.
The rain lessened for the ladies fives.
The sun came out for the men’s threes.
Hard fought to the end.
One of the support craft.
Tony at the front, Andy at the wheel of the officials boat.
I’m only looking at their headdresses – honestly.
OK maybe just one chest.....
The exhausted ladies six champions.
Delight and cheers.
The ladies eights race was nail biting.
The crowd went wild, well sort of.
The yellow team won by a whisker.
The men's eights winners.
Well, what a day, time for a well earned rest.
ALL IN ALL VERY EXCITING
