The Queen is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee with a River Thames pageant and over one thousand boats are expected to celebrate with Her Majesty The Queen on Sunday 3 June 2012.
If you are in the London Pageant, or celebrating along your own waterways, its time to start preparing your vessel and crew! From Diamond Jubilee London Pageant flags to celebration horns, boat polishes to help shine your boat and crew equipment such as lifejackets and fenders are just some items to consider.
Decorate your boat for the London Jubilee River Pageant with Flags, Red Ensigns and Club Burgees. Install a new Boat Flagstaff for The Queens Celebrations and fly the flag for the Jubilee pageant. Drape decorative Diamond Jubilee bunting on your boat and be ready for the cameras!
Get the crew ship shape for the festive Jubilee River Pageant with lifejackets, deck shoes and warm jackets. It is a requirement to ware a lifejacket during the London Pageant for everyone onboard. It is also a good idea to have safety equipment to hand including life rings and boat hooks.
The Queen's Diamond Jubilee is a year long party so what better way to entertain friends and family than on the water. Boat ovens and boat heating along with champagne and wine glasses are the perfect way to celebrate on your boat during the Jubilee festivities.
The stage is set. The cameras are rolling all around the waterways. Is your boat ready for the Jubilee Pageant? Clean and polish your boat for the eyes of the World to see! Take a full boat cleaning kit with you during the year to shine and show off your boat to local and international press!
With so many boats attending the River Thames London Pageant and other waterway meetings throughout the year it is important to be ready for all situations. Be sure to have adequate boat fenders to protect your boat and possibly add extra fenders if you are part of the possession in London as there is sure to be a lot of traffic!
One of the beauties of boating these days is that almost all home comforts can be installed on your boat with a little work and inspiration, including everything you may need for a very modern boat toilet cloakroom. Everything from environmentally friendly toilet chemicals, boat sized mini toilet brush and toilet roll holders, to rapidly dissolving toilet paper and toilet servicing kits help keep everything flowing in the right direction!
Ensure you have safe, clean mooring ropes during the year so they work safely. Pre-spliced mooring ropes are very popular as they can be used straight out of the bag; but for long mooring ropes it is a good idea to buy boat rope by the metre.
