The annual TVR will kick off the Thames boating season over the bank holiday weekend

The annual Thames Valley Rally (TVR) is in its 26th year and is hoping to draw the crowds this weekend.

From 2-4 May members from Bray Cruiser Club, Harleyford Motor Yacht Club, The Windsor Yacht Club and Oxford Ditch Cruising Club will congregate at Copas Meadow, opposite Temple Island, near Henley.

Events over the weekend will include a pig roast, a Pimms party, the fiercely fought boat handling competition and the famous sail past, which is always a splendid sight for passing boaters.
