I was fortunate enough to receive an invitation to go afloat on the Thames to see the ships mustering for the parade.
We encountered the first of the fleet in Limehouse Reach.
We then proceeded down past Greenwich and around to abeam the West India dock entrance and then shadowed the sailing ship Jantje as she made her way to the start point.
As we approached the lower pool some great views of the ships assembling were to be had with a fantastic backdrop of London landmarks.
Overall the whole Sail Greenwich 2014 event has been an amazing spectacle with lots of great sailing ships to see and thanks go to the organisers and all the supporters that helped stage and manage the event – lets hope London doesn’t have to wait another 25 years for an event of this magnitude.
