Thames Pageant 2012


June 3rd 2012 will see The Queen's Diamond Jubilee, there will be many Suffolk connections regarding this event many of them connected with the waters along our coasts and the rivers that ingress inland

I already have several photographs of the craft that will be taking part in the flotilla and on static display, I also hope to be on The Embankment on the day and so will add any photos that are deemed appropriate after the event

Please feel free to add your own stories and photos smile

'Cygnet' is the oldest working Thames Sailing Barge/Yacht still in existence, she was built in 1881 and can often be seeing either moored up at Snape Maltings or sailing the River Alde or visiting other such places

Another Thames Sailing Barge [TSB] that will be taking part in The Avenue of Sail will be Hydrogen the largest of the TSB's still in existence built in Kent in 1906 I believe this one will have the office of The Lord Lieutenant of Essex aboard

She was once owned by Bells Scotch Whisky, I snapped this at Ipswich waterfront outside The Old Customs House
