Watch the Head of the River

London's other boatrace, Head of the River, is a bit more of a democratic affair, with over 400 crews participating, each made up of eight rowers. This makes for quite a spectacle, as around 3500 participants take part, having travelled from all over the UK, and around the world.

The race takes place between Mortlake and Putney, starting at 11am today, with various prizes on offer. Whilst it's usually fairly impossible to follow it as a formal racing spectator event, the sheer number of boats on the river makes for a festive atmosphere.
