Three Men in a Boat

In August 2007, two friends and I recreated the journey described in Jerome K. Jerome's 1889 comic novel, 'Three Men in a Boat'. Over the course of a week, we rowed (albeit in the wrong direction to that in the book due to high currents) from Oxford to London in a 120 year old double-skulling skiff named Clare.

I kept an illustrated diary of the trip, and have included some work-in-progress sections here (I plan at some point in the next half-century to colour them all and generally tidy everything up).
