Wivenhoe One Design dinghies racing.

The Smack Race finished rather late in the afternoon; Mary CK252 sails home in sparkling ripples. The Mary was built at Brightlingsea in 1900.
The big steel spritsail barge Wyvenhoe was completed in 1898 by Forrestt & Son. Seen from the ferry, she is moored less then 50 metres from her birthplace. She is nearly 80 gross register tons, and 82 feet in length.
