Queen’s Diamond Jubilee on the Thames

April 20th, 2011 by Guy

Following the excitement of this year’s Royal Wedding there’s more Royal festivities on the horizon as plans get underway to celebrate 60 years of the Queen’s reign. Next year from 2nd – 5th June 2012 London will celebrate and commemorate the events of the last 60 years with a four-day Jubilee weekend.

On Sunday 3 June 2012, The Queen will lead a flotilla of up to one thousand boats assembled from across the UK, the Commonwealth and around the world along the River Thames. It will be a huge spectacle culminating in a gun salute as the flotilla passes through a spectacular avenue of sail made by traditional Thames sailing boats, oyster smacks, Tall Ships, naval vessels and other impressive ships.

Topsail’s own Mark Tower was recently invited to attend a press conference given by Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and the Thames Diamond Jubilee Foundation. Mark  announced today that Topsail is sure to be involved in a major way in this spectacular event and will be offering some fantastic river cruise opportunities for corporate and group travel, so watch this space…!
