Update: Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebration. Excursion Row. Sat. 4th June at 13 45. CANCELLED due to wind.

This post was updated on .
THIS ROW HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED, DUE TO HIGHER WINDS THAN HOPED FOR!

Our local tides [HW 1535] don't fit well with the timings of planned celebrations for our illustrious Queen [see below] -
BUT....
 we will have an excursion row, as soon as the tide will allow us, on the afternoon of Saturday 4th June.
Sign up as usual please, and bring your good selves and some pleasant memories of past events in your life during Elizabeth's Reign.
Present forecast is for moderate easterly breezes, with a damp morning brightening up in the afternoon, so dress appropriately and bring a drink (it could even be a special one on this occasion). Destination probably Emsworth - so that we can "Freewheel" with the wind all the way back to Langstone!

One might be tempted to gather somewhere near a foreshore at midday, armed with anything noisy that you can lay your hands on, after reading the notices below........

The British Marine Industries issued this statement earlier this month, after Grant Shapps had (belatedly) made a statement about a national celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee:-

12.00 BST, Saturday 4 June 2022

From cruise liners to destroyers, frigates to motor cruisers, narrowboats to ferries, if you’ve got a horn, then blow it!


On Saturday 4 June, to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, there will be a ‘Ships Salute’ where every vessel, in every UK harbour, is being asked to sound a simultaneous long loud blast on their horn or whistle at exactly midday (12.00 BST).


“As a proud maritime nation and where the name of Her Majesty has graced not only cruise liners but also the largest ship in the Royal Navy fleet, we really want the Maritime sector to show support with Merchant, Naval and leisure vessels alike by marking the Jubilee as a synchronised ‘salute’ from their horn,” RT.Hon. Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for Transport.


Every Royal Navy, Merchant Navy and recreational vessel regardless of size, class and category is invited to join the Ships Salute. Pre-registration is not required.

Sorry Nigel, looks like I’m going to have to miss this row now - trains to Havant seem to be all over the place over the bank holiday weekend.
Have a great row though and look forward to seeing you soon

The predicted winds for this afternoon are F5 gusting F6 so this afternoon's row has reluctantly been cancelled.
Apologies, James,  but force majeure has meant that you and I were the only potential rowers anyway!
