More Tossing

The Olympic flame was rowed from Hampton Court Palace down the Thames to Tower Bridge today aboard the Queen's Row Barge Gloriana, powered by Olympic oarsmen back to 1948. Unless you count the added boost from the bow thruster, clearly to be seen in this picture.
There is a good report here.
Also in the parade were the Thames skiff Cherub with Adrian Hodge, and Thames Waterman's Cutter Trinity Tide, with Joe Lane. Hope you had a great time guys - it was certainly a lot warmer and drier than the Pageant! And if you have any nice pics, please send them along....
