Originating in 1863 through the initiative of Henry Dodd (1801-1881) Victorian London’s “Golden Dustman”, it is now the longest running, regularly organised, national racing event for traditional sail in the world. Based on Gravesend, Kent, it takes place annually on the lower River Thames, in association with the Port of London Authority.
