And not just because it rained so much of the time. Over on Canalworld, Paul H provides, from memory, the following list of historic boats present at Braunston this year:
Adamant, Arcangel, Atlantic, Barrow*, Bream (stern end), Brighton, Buckden, Callisto, Camel, Clematis, Columbia (stern end)*, Corona, Cyprus, Darley,* Denebola, Dodona (bow end), Dover, Empress, Enterprise, Gambia, George, Gifford, Gorse*, Gosport, Grange (bow end)*, Grimsby, Hadley, Hyperion, James Loader, Jubilee, Kangaroo, Kildare, Laplander, Leo*, Madeley (bow end), Manchuria (bow end), Marquis, Mary, Minnow, Monarch, Nuneaton*, Nutfield, Olive, Pelican, President, Raymond, Renfrew*, Saltaire*, Scorpio, Sculptor, Skylark, Stamford, Star, Stour, Sweden, Tarporley, Thea (bow end), Tug No 2, Vesta, Vulcan, Warbler.
Someone else added Panther, and I was proud to be able to add (not only seen with my own eyes, but remembered too!) Rudd, Lupin, Lamprey, Plover, Dory, Badger, Cassiopaeia, Malus and Swallow.
The ones marked * are ones I don't remember seeing (and it seems that Leo maybe wasn't there but Paul was thinking of Malus) - the amazing thing is how many I do remember. That makes a total of 70 (69 if you discount Leo) out of the 74 that I heard tell were there.
Now, lets sort them by company, builder, class ...
