One thought on “Saltcote Belle, Blackwater barge match, 1963”

  1. This was probably soon after the start of the match. I know it all took place over 50 years ago, but it’s hard to believe that barges like ‘Saltcote Belle’ and ‘Spinaway C’ no longer exist. But, who would have thought then that Horlocks’ steel barges would ever be rerigged, or even – in the case of ‘Blue Mermaid’ built again new?
