When it comes to awards, since 1991, Woottens’ clients frequently pick up a clutch of trophies at the renowned Thames Traditional Boat Rally, where the standard of Woottens’ workmanship is publicly acknowledged at this annual gathering of vintage craft. Their clients have regularly been awarded The Andrews Trophy for the best slipper launch at the show, and more notably The Bourne Trophy, awarded to the ‘best in show’ amongst others such as The Osland Trophy, The Penton Hook Trophy, The Dean Marine Trophy, House and Garden Chalice and many more.

In Recognition of over 30 years of dedication and service on the Thames, in 2007 Guy Wootten was honoured to be invited by The Queen’s Swan Marker to take part in the historic ceremony of Swan Upping; he hopes to continue in the prestigious role of Swan Upper on behalf of The Crown for many years to come.
