Thames Barge Driving Race DP095299

Played In series: London. The Thames Barge Driving Race was set up in 1975 by a charity called The Transport On Water Association (TOW). The race consists of about 11 teams of between 4 and 8 members who steer and row 30 ton barges over a seven mile course from Greenwich to Westminster Bridge. Considerable skill is needed to pilot unpowered barges rowed under oars or sweeps and ride tidal river currents alone, up river. Lightermen moved freight along the Thames this way up until the 1930s
