A hundred boats – and their owners of course – made the journey to Aylesbury in August 1961 for an annual boat rally staged by the Inland Water Association.

Boats filled the canal basin in Aylesbury and stretched for a quarter of a mile along both sides of the canal.

At the official close of the rally, the biggest ever at the time, 160 people sat down for an Aylesbury duck dinner.
