Ocean Village's Diamond Jubilee Flotilla's Captain's Briefing is under way now. Addressing the Captains is Ros Astengo, event organiser, Greg Butcher, owner of Ocean Village and the Royal Gibraltar Police.
Minister for Culture, the Hon Mr Linares is attending the event. Minister Linares will be setting the flotilla off by sounding the official horn. The 115 boats will start to move off and in formation will sail around Gibraltar from Ocean Village, round to the Eastern Side, where they will turn around near Catalan Bay and then come back to Ocean Village.
It’s just gone 10:00am and YGTV are down in Ocean Village from where the Jubilee Flotilla will be departing at around midday. So far there is a large congregation of seafaring folk outside O’Reilley’s enjoying a Captains’ Breakfast to get energy levels up before the official Captains’ Briefing.
There is a definite buzz in the air and the excitement is palpable. Stay tuned throughout the day for regular updates, photos and footage from this Special Jubilee Celebration.
