The barge-driving races re-enact the way that watermen manouvered their barges on the Thames in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Cheer on modern-day watermen and lightermen as they battle it out in the Steve Faldo Memorial Barge Drive, while friends, family and newcomers compete in the Dave Pope Challenge.
