Sailing Barge May this Saturday provided a dramatic backdrop to Stage 8 of the Tour of Britain cycle race. The final stage of the tour this year hosted by the Olympic and Paralympic Borough of Newham involved an action packed 8 lap circuit around the Royal Victoria Docks at Excel London.

 The race coincided with the Newham London Waterfront Festival which included live music and a Food Village with stallholders from across London and concluded with a fantastic firework display over the water. The S.B. May hosted a children’s pirate activity workshop run by Emergency Exit Arts as part of the festival.
