- Racing Barges
13th July 2013
Start from Mucking No. 3 buoy, Lower Hope Reach, River Thames to South East Leigh buoy, returning to the finish off Erith Pier.
Sailing Barge EDITH MAY
Following her ten year restoration the Edith May raced for the first time in the revived Thames Match in 2011 coming last of the Staysail Class. With an enviable racing record in the 1960s it was no surprise to the older sailormen to see her back in winning ways by the 2012, getting the best of the windless conditions to secure her victory. She is again entered in 2013.
