Jubilee regatta

In 2012 it was the Queen’s diamond jubilee and to celebrate there was a regatta along the Thames river.

Got there an hour or so before it was meant to start with my friend. Even then we were two people deep from our chosen spot on the river. Luckily I’m tall enough to see over fairly easily. Failing that the randoms near us with their cameras out (or in one case a streaming video from BBC) helped to get a closer view of the activities.

It was good seeing all the vessels and the atmosphere was friendly and fun. I guess there was information about each section but you didn’t need it to enjoy it. As the rain started to fall we headed off to a pub for food and to watch the remainder on TV (it definitely seemed like everyone was watching it).

Now when’s the next one?
