Rowing the length of Thames was always on my bucket list, now firmly ticked off! (Oxford-Marlow in 4 days – 2016)
– Colin and friends
After a few days rowing and camping we rested up in a great authentic hotel – didn’t mind the rain much and looking forward to next year
Josh, Seattle, Wa.
We visited a lot of pubs, fortunately we weren’t in a hurry! – camping was cosy.

My favourite bit was the Goring Gap just before Henley – it felt like we were miles from anywhere!

“All in the golden afternoon
Full leisurely we glide
For both our oars, with little skill,
By little arms are plied,
While little hands make vain pretence
Our wanderings to guide”
‘Crossing the stripling Thames at Bab-lock-hithe,
Trailing in the cool stream thy fingers wet,
As the slow punt swings round’
