London 2012 Olympics

Between Bray and Boveney locks is known as Dorney Reach. The Olympic rowing lake is near the river. Police security requires us not to stop between the locks and keep over to the right. A wide convoy is heading up stream with police, EA, and other launches forced us over even further.

 “Oh look, they look like the British Olympic Team.” There were TV cameras on board one of the boats. Later that evening we discovered that Helen Glover and Heather Stanning had won GOLD and were seen on the ITV news.

We were all very lucky to find space for both boats on Bath Island at Windsor opposite Eton. It cost £24 for three nights. Several large trip boats are going by making us rock again with their wake.
Windsor Castle can be seen not far away. We agree to look after each other’s Mollies while we go out on different days. We went first to visit the Castle.
