Olympic flame passes Thames Sailing Club in final stages of Olympic torch relay
Spectacular view of the Olympic flame on its journey down the Thames
Early this morning (Friday 27 July) hundreds of spectators, and members of the Thames Sailing Club in Surbiton, lined the banks of the Thames to cheer-on the Olympic flame as it made its way down the river.
The flame, carried on board the Royal Barge 'Gloriana', was en route to Tower Bridge in central London for the London 2012 Opening Ceremony this evening.
Thames Sailing Club’s Vice Commodore Ian Pratt comment: “As Britain's oldest inland sailing club, we were thrilled to be part of this momentous occasion.
"'Gloriana' and the flotilla were spectacular. It was a truly momentous occasion. We are incredibly excited about what will be the best ever Olympic and Paralympic Games and have high hopes for Team GB and particularly the sailing team.
"Good luck from everyone at Thames."
Thames Sailing Club is an RYA affiliated club and is Britain's oldest inland sailing club, home of the unique and world-famous Thames A-Rater and Kingston University Sailing Club.
