I love this as I love sailing. Though I don't get much of an opportunity to do so nowadays. I find there is something very clean and cleansing about sailing on a day like the one in the picture.

The Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race: "Up to a quarter of a million people turn out to watch even though most of them know nothing about rowing and will be able to see only a small part of it; and some are too busy drinking to see the boats speed past. Around another nine million watch on TV, an estimated 600 million worldwide, making it the biggest boat race on the planet. It takes place on the Thames in London, from Putney Bridge."
