First Princess, Kerrianne Massetti, has just arrived at Ocean Village to show her support for the Diamond Jubilee Flotilla. She informs YGTV that she has been pursuing the Flotilla around Gibraltar by car, capturing glimpses from Waterport and Europa Point, from where, she says, the views were spectacular.
Kerrianne took the time to speak to us on camera when she visited our base of operations at Ocean Village. The interview will be up online soon.
YGTV met with the Minister For Culture, the Hon Minister Stephen Linares, talking to us about the Ocean Village, Diamond Jubilee Flotilla events.
The Flotilla has finished but the party is just getting started down at Ocean Village. With the return of all the boat crews, visitors, families and crew members are now settling down in Ocean Village for some food and drinks in the sun, taking the time to soak in the atmosphere and celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The sea legs seem to have settled quickly as throngs of people fill the bars and restaurants in Ocean Village and enjoy some red, white and blue fun.
The 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. Once all boats are berthed and their crews are back on dry land, the celebrations will continue with the Champagne Party here at Ocean Village. It has been a truly magnificent day and a spectacular show of patriotism and allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen in celebration of her Diamond Jubilee.
