Latest reports from the Flotilla are that they have now reached the East Side of the Rock and there has been a massive turnout on land to show support and enjoy the spectacle. Our reporters at the scene have been amazed by the numbers of people enjoying views of the Flotilla from Europa Point as it cruises past. The pageant is currently turning around at Eastern Beach and preparing to return to port at Ocean Village Marina. If you haven’t already had a chance to see the Flotilla sail past there is still time to find a vantage point somewhere on the Rock in order to catch a glimpse of this fantastic Jubilee Celebration.
The Ocean Village Flotilla has proven to be a huge success, but it's not all out at sea. There is a great crowd in Ocean Village enjoying the bouncy castle, the face painting and having a drink and lunch in the sunshine. What a great day.
The YGTV team at Ocean Village are pleased to report that preparations for the Celebratory Champagne Party are well underway. All those involved in the Jubilee Flotilla are cordially invited to carry on the Jubilee celebrations in style at Ocean Village with a private Champagne Party to toast Her Majesty’s good health and the Flotilla’s safe return to port.
Decorations are being put in place at the end of The Island in Ocean Village, opposite Savannah, to welcome back the Flotilla crews. In the meantime, visitors continue to stream past covered in Red, White and Blue, reminding us all why we are actually here; to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Head down to Ocean Village and soak up the action.
The Ocean Village Diamond Jubilee Flotilla has now reached the half way point, by Eastern Beach, where it is now turning around and heading back towards Ocean Village. Here are a few photos from our YGTV Reporters on board:
