Photo of the
St Albans International August 1990
For many years the August Bank Holiday weekend meant a trip to St Albans for the Speed Meeting on Saturday, straight running on Sunday and the International hydro meeting on Monday. Here we see Oliver Monk, Steve Turley looking especially cool and John DeMott. Oliver has forsaken his waders for tethered cars but Steve and John are still getting into the water. Indeed John is still campaigning his A Class boat 'Passing Wind' that he is holding in the photo.
Sadly, water management problems brought the curtain down on the longest established regatta in the programme four years ago.
