Chertsey, Surrey to Penton Hook. Monday 19 July 2010
Uppers in Chertsey Lock. Vintners in white tops, Dyers in blue, Royal uppers in red, and at back the Swan Warden
The boats following the uppers also fly swan flags

The Queen's Swan Marker, David Barber
Swans race one of the boats, but the uppers ignore them as they have no cygnets
