OV Flotilla ReturnsThe Flotilla has returned! Two hours after the pageant commenced its tour of the Bay of Gibraltar, Minister for Culture, Stephen Linares, led the vessels triumphantly back into Ocean Village Marina. All boats in the Flotilla were resplendent in red, white and blue, flying flags and bunting in celebration of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee.

As we write this report further vessels are entering the marina, returning to their berths and to an expectant crowd of visitors and well-wishers who have come down to Ocean Village for the day.
