Carnival day in Weymouth

The fleet woke to blue skies and scattered clouds, with the sun breaking through later on. So the weather looked promising for Weymouth’s 50th anniversary Carnival and grand firework display.

Festivities continued throughout the day with funfair rides, a tug-of-war, sand sculpting, wing walking, the main carnival procession and the nation’s favourite – the Red Arrows.

The MBM fleet enjoyed another day to themselves and met in the evening for a buffet dinner at the Royal Dorset Yacht Club, where Neale addressed participants about the possibility of a move to Dartmouth tomorrow. The plan is the RIB Time Flies will depart Town Quay at 6am and head out past Portland Bill and report back on the sea conditions. If all goes well, the rest of the fleet will leave at 7am.
