The Thames is going to be busier than ever this summer.

One thousand ships will parade along the river during the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in June, and during the Olympic Games,  the spectacular tall ships of Sail Royal Greenwich will transport guests up and down the Thames.

Here’s a preview of tall ship Thalassa sailing on the Thames. You’ll be able to see more during the Parade of Sail on 25 July when 20 tall ships and 200 smaller vessels will take to the Thames and sail to Greenwich.

After that, keep an eye out for Sail Royal Greenwich’s 15 tall ships, which can be spotted on the Thames until 12 August 2012.
