Great Nawth Rivah Race

It's that time of year again - the annual North River Great Race!
(Yes, this is my back yard!) 

Starting line is the Union Street Bridge, just across the road from our own Rivah Cottage.  
The race course is 7 miles up river
so the start always depends on the tide.  

One of sponsors this year was the 
"Spit Dudes ~ Beach and BBQ"

And they're off .... paddling right by our dock! 

first the canoes battle it out.....

and then the kayaks ..... not as serious! 

Only one great casualty and rescue....
better luck next year!

First I have to say that your first photo is stunning--I would want to live in your backyard all day if I was in your shoes! Gorgeous! Second, I guess the boat race parallels some of the great spectacles we've seen on the Thames, does it not? How fun!
