This soggiest of summers put paid to the flotilla and the Dragon Boat Race.

But the rest of the three-day charter party for York 800 went ahead, undaunted by the grey skies or over-the-top Ouse. You’ve been out and about capturing the best bits: here’s a selection of audio, videos and pictures from the celebrations.

The excellent videos below are by York-based exhibition designers Sue and Dick Raines – see their full collection of films here.
