An amateur film with intertitles which records a family trip on two small sailing boats to Windsor. Two sets of parents are joined by their young sons as they sail along the River Thames, passing numerous other vessels, stopping for a swim, filming riverbank activities and a yacht race, and reaching Windsor where they walk past the Castle.
