Sailing barge 'Xylonite' passing Lower Hope Point
Sailing barge 'Xylonite' passing Lower Hope Point
Photo taken in the later stages of the 2016 Thames Barge Match. 'Xylonite' was the third barge to head upstream towards the finishing line - some minutes behind 'Edme', but hot on the heels of 'Niagara'.

The weather may look reasonably settled, but rain was already in sight further south-west. There were soon stormy skies over both Kent and Essex, with distant thunder further east.
