What is believed to be a record entry of 135 boats contested the 49th Three Rivers Race at the weekend.

Big crowds lined the bridges at Potter Heigham and Acle in particular, where sailing boats large and small found different ways of getting under the low arches.

The race starts at Horning Sailing Club and passes key points on the three rivers of the northern Broads - the Bure, the Ant and the Thurne - before returning.

This year's overall winner, from 109 finishers, was Richard and George Whitefoot's Yeoman, Folly Too - 32 minutes ahead of the second-placed Mark Elson and William Daniels in their punt Snark.
