'Niagara', painted white, is tacking close to the Kentish shore, while 'Marjorie' heads directly upstream.

Conditions at the time were almost windless, with the temperature at about 28C. Less than half an hour later a fresh breeze blew up, so that the two barges in the picture - along with 'Adieu' and 'Cambria' - sped round the last bend to the finish at Gravesend. 'Lady of the Lea', 'Ironsides' and 'Repertor' motored home.
