Dghajsas on the Thames

The Maltese dghajsas at the Great River Race were spectacular, with their tall bows and stems and bright paintwork. They could go as well - this one passed Gladys somewhere off Kew, though we never saw the other.
I am told that rowing clubs in Malta employ professional oarsmen at some regattas, to uphold the honour of the club if they have doubts about their A crews to put in a decent time. The rowers that passed us were certainly taking no prisoners.
