Here I managed to get two dogs running off the jetty and into the water after their owners
But there are three, and they swim out and pick up the people in the water so easily and with such determination
This picture was before the jump-they are waiting fairly patiently on the jetty here
This dog is preparing to jump from the boat and rescue four people
I can't remember this brown dogs name but it is the oldest dog and will retire from these fundraising events this year at 8 years old. It is very strong and although I couldn't get the picture it can pull a boat with two people to shore.
Two beautiful dogs looking so happy wet right through!
I took a lot more photos but that's probably enough for now! Here are some images of the Dartmouth Regatta 2013
The food is spectacular at the Regatta and so much to choose from
Royal Navy display-jumping from the plane and landing in the River Dart - a real crowd pleaser
The crowds still arriving in the late afternoon by steam train at Kingswear
And finally....I'm on the ferry going back home
I have a link to the Newfoundland Friends website on the blog, if you'd like to know more about what they all do and why they do it.
We have had more great weather over the last week or so and Brixham is very busy. Some rain is forecast for Friday and the garden and birds could certainly do with it. My bird bath is very busy, so I'm sure the birds will welcome some lovely soft rain to wash in.
Enjoy the rest of the week
