A thousand boats gathered on the Thames on Sunday 3 June, in celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
It was the largest flotilla in modern times with rowing boats, working boats and pleasure vessels of all shapes and sizes. The flotilla stretched for more than 12 miles, and proved extremely popular – with three boats applying for every place. Among the boats chosen was Knot Arf, owned by Andrew Bernstein, immediate past commodore of the Thames Motor Yacht Club and Master of London-based Lodge of Enterprise No. 6494.
