Coracle Regatta, Hackney - 2012

Sept 2012

This was the 7th annual Coracle Regatta at Hackney Wick, London.

A coracle is a one-person boat designed by druids and woven from strips of the ash tree.  Although contenders race a short distance, the way across the water is never straight forward, as coracles tend to weave and wend like water dodgems.
