Henley on Thames, move over, you don’t need water to have a regatta!
Henley on Todd has been proving that since 1962 with an annual race of bottomless boats and rowers who are more fleet of foot than arm.
And to wrap it all up the big boats are launched for a spectacular sea battle in which locals – including captains of industry – come head to head to head as pirates and Vikings. And all that at least 1500 kms from a decent body of water. If you missed it watch it here!
Henley on Todd is run entirely on a volunteer basis by the three Rotary Clubs based in the Alice. The entire proceeds – well over a million dollars over the years – are allocated to local, national and international humanitarian projects. Images by ERWIN CHLANDA.
