Day 48 of The Olympic Torch relay saw the Torch being carried to Ipswich Town Centre from Fox’s Marina by sea.
The Torchbearer and his entourage were carried on a new Beneteau Swift Trawler 44 up to the iconic Orwell Bridge for a photo opportunity. Not only were the river banks lined with cheering spectators but also a huge flotilla of boats and yachts welcomed the Torch to the Orwell.
