The Boat Race Flotilla – Traditional boat procession

Wraysbury skiffs took part The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race day on 2 April as a spectacular procession, led by the Queen’s Row Barge Gloriana, preceded the races themselves.

The three Wraysbury skiffs were a significant part of the flotilla of traditional boats which rowed the course, our nine skiffers enjoyed a great day out in excellent weather when, for once, overtaking the boat ahead was not allowed!

Thanks to our own Nick Teale for his excellent photographs

    This is the perfect website for anybody who would
    like to understand this topic. You realize so much its
    almost hard to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).

    You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject which has
    been written about for years. Wonderful stuff, just great!
