A lovely warm summer day and it was the annual Cookham Regatta run by the local Rotary. It is the ninth year the Regatta has been jointly run by the Rotary Clubs of Cookham Bridge and Marlow Thames. The main sponsor was Michael Shanly Homes and Copas Partnership had allowed the use of Marsh Meadow and their trailer. Over thirty charities will be supported from the profits of the day including Elizabeth House in Cookham, local charities in the area, plus national and international charities. 

Hungry work for MC for the day Charles Benson 

Looking victorious here are the team called TITANIC who had a team of Aussies, Americans and Brits thrown together to take one win and one second place.

The TITANIC crew, hope the name is not an omen

We didn't sink, we WON!!

There was bungee jumping as a popular attraction. 


The vintage cars were also in attendance; always popular with the visitors who come from far and wide.  

It's even older than mine

A nice little runabout

The Rotary club  were delighted with the turn out, and the crowds on the shore enjoyed the races as well as the other activities. It was agreed that this was another fabulous day of well organised fun and fund-raising. Attractions for everybody and particularly for those taking part.

Let's travel in style
