King Harry joins Team GB


The King Harry Ferry played host to a group of Olympic Champions as they headed to St Mawes for a special rowing event.

Team GB’s Olympic champion rowers, including Penzance’s Helen Glover, stop for a quick photo on the King Harry Ferry

The Team GB rowers locked oars with Cornwall’s gig rowers in an all-female battle.

The Olympians, who included Penzance’s Helen Glover, travelled to St Mawes on the King Harry Ferry and had time for a quick photo shoot with the Ferry’s long-standing resident, Phileas.

Fal River Cornwall’s Tommy Tonkins said: “As a gig rower myself and a huge fan of the Olympics it was a great honour to have the Team GB ladies on the King Harry Ferry.”

Fal River Cornwall also provided a flotilla of spectator boats and raised around £750 for ShelterBox.
