Rowing enthusiasts got a chance to row their boats gently - and fiercely - down the Thames at the weekend during the annual Shrimper’s Regatta.

This year’s regatta, which features Skiff rowing competitions, was its 24th year.

The two-day event was based along Gravesend’s Gordon Promenade.

Organisers said it was the best regatta yet.
