Henley by boat – a Pension PlayPen Photoblog!


Plowman getting fat

What a fabulous week for the 67 people who came on Lady Lucy between Wednesday and Saturday. It was a shame we couldn’t do Sunday- especially with St Pauls and Sir William Borlase winning the two boys events!

Here are a few photos that have arrived in my email so far. If you would like to mail me photos you may have, I will included them on this photo-blog.

Happy days at the top of town with some great lunches


Some welcome shade on the Wednesday

Thanks to everyone who came, steered, washed up, did the ropes and generally contributed to the best Henley ever.

Henley dat two

In Hurley Mill Pond

But Henley is all about rowing and here is St Pauls beating Westminster despite an attempt to disqualify them by Matthew Pinsent

And here’s Sir William Borlase crew winning the Fawley with Rufus, Jamie Biggs’ son sculling three.

Borlase got talent!


Rufus is the beardy one in the middle.

Thanks to everyone who came, sorry to those on Saturday we had no space for. I hope we all enjoyed ourselves and that Henley 2016 will be as much fun
