Thousands swarmed to Pavillion Beach for Sunday's Championship Seine Boat races and the Greasy Pole. I was among the throng after deciding not to take out my boat. What I ended up with was a beer splashed T-shirt and wearing Greasy Pole grease! That's what happens when you get too close to the celebration! I also got a bunch of images.
