Footage filmed today (August 28), shows the annual Thames Sailing Barge Match taking place in Medway, South East England. The historic race starts and finishes at Gillingham Pier. It plots a course out into the Thames Estuary and back. Around seven barges took part in this year's event with some very fast times recorded thanks to the stiff north-easterly breeze. Competitors set off at 7 am. They were expected to finish around 2 pm, but due to the favourable winds, the majority had finished by 11 am.
