Steam Boat Society 40th

The Steam Boat Association were celebrating their 40th anniversary at Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu River, much to the delight of steam boat fans and small children alike.

Boats out on the river ranged from the quirky (above) to elegant (below).

But for many it's as much about looking at boats and chatting about boats as it is getting out onto the water.

With fine weather and light breeze it was a perfect day for steaming along this delightful wooded river.

Ashore the Master Builder's hotel were holding a food festival and food market, while members of the Solent Old Gaffers Association were also attending the weekend's events.

The events diary on the Steam Boat Association site shows a packed summer itinerary at events all over the country, so it was a real privilege to see so many steaming in our home waters.
