Similar to last year, Committee Member, Stephen Bernhard, organised Dutch barge Zingara for use by members of the Club in order to participate in the Lord Mayor’s Flotilla boarding St Katharine’s Pier at 07.00.
Bacon butties and hot coffee were enjoyed as the Pageant assembled upstream from Vauxhall. Then Gloriana and her Livery entourage bore the Lord Mayor downstream to HMS President where the Lord Mayor disembarked.
The barge then cruised past Greenwich to the Thames Barrier and beyond before returning to the Hermitage moorings for a hot lunch in a local brasserie.
A day of City pomp, brilliantly organised and enjoyed by all.
