1200 - Reveiwing vessel with HM The Queen embarked departs Portsmouth.
1300 - Review commences.
1445 - Review concludes. Reviewing vessel anchors Sth of Outer Spit Bouy. Steam past by destroyer sqadron (at 15 knots - spectator craft should be alert for wash). Tall ships motor past the reviewing vessel, coinciding with massed fly-past of international maritime aircraft. Previously-nominated group of sail and motor yachts proceed past the reviewing vessel.
1700 - Tall ships begin positioning for son et lumiere
1730 - Aerobatic displays
1900 - Son Et Lumiere begins (simulated battle from 2140) followed by fireworks.
2230 - Event concludes

Does anyone know when the ships for the review will arrive and anchor up in the Solent?

Will there be anything worth seeing on the weekend of 25th 26th?
