Decorated canal boats take part in a "canal rally" in Stourbridge.
Canal Rally is the focus of this story. Various shots of canal boats being cleaned, chrome being polished and ironwork being painted. Boats are decorated with fake flowers and bunting. The highly decorated boats mooch up and down the river. Local mayors are taken for a trip. Narrator mentions the Inland Waterways Association and their bid to keep the canals open. Good C/Us of some of the skippers of the boats.
Game is played where men in two rowing boats try to knock each other into the water - a jousting match.
Cuts exist - see separate record.
