Queen's Diamond Jubilee Pageant

Look out for Cherub on 3rd June. She will be flying the Norfolk flag and dressed with bunting from stem to stern. We have had some illness in the crew, which has necessitated a change. Fortunately Stuart has stepped in to add much needed muscle and stamina so the required speed of 4 knots looks achievable for the whole length of the course. We don't want to end up under tow, or in the Waifs and Strays division.

Provisionally Cherub has been positioned in the first row of the skiffs, with John Disley, Sgian Dubh, Willow and five others abreast across the Thames. Cherub will be on the most southerly station and Willow, from Beccles, the most northerly.

I'm also looking forward to meeting our old friends from Langstone Cutters and making new friends from amongst the fixed seat fraternity.
