Jubilee....?

I am sure this has been covered already but I have a simple question for my fellow inflatable friends......is there anything worthwhile that the GF and I can do with our little Aerotec on the Thames during the Royal Pageant? Cheers in advance Will

If you venture onto the river during the pageant without being part of the organisation, you'll probably get a visit from the boys in black & I don't mean the amateurs from the Met

If you're not part of the event I wouldn't bother going afloat. Everyone who is part has had to submit their details for a police check; you'll probably get turned away as you head down the river.

You're also likely to the boat swamped with the number on the river kicking up wakes

Rnli in some areas are doing their own river or harbour pagents

Did hear At a last review the RNLI has more boats than the Royal Navy these days ,, and I don't think it's a joke

thanks - yes we have our own Diamond Jubilee Cruise to Stirling - with beating if if the retreat and civic reception laid on by Stirling council.

Best of all , a great person is helping to organise this ME lol

The plan is to launch at Port Edgar to meet the canal boaters from Grangemouth.
