Pictures taken by Mark Smith who was

Consuta's fireman during the Twickenham Regatta

25th May 2008

Doesn't look much looking back over the stern

But all very exiting following a race

We wondered why Consuta was so popular as a chase boat

Because they serve cups of tea while waiting for the next race

There's the giveaway - ignore the engine - just look at all those cups!

Engine man - Stuart Clarke and Skipper David Eager
