The Racing and River Boat Museum houses racing dinghies and river craft from Great Britain and around the world. There are many important examples of canoes within the collection, some dating back to the 1850’s. There are a variety of sailing dinghies on display with plans to extend the collection in the near future. There are currently two boats in restoration, a Finn (dinghy class sailed by Ben Ainslie) and a Tideway 14 (Traditional Clinker Build).
