Queen's Birthday Parade

The Parade of Boats organised by the RDYC on Saturday 23rd April, 2016 to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday was a huge success.  


Following a rescue demonstration, the RNLI lifeboat, ‘Ernest and Mabel’, led the parade along Wemouth bay and into the harbour.  Large crowds lined the harbour front to cheer on a fleet of over 60 vessels of all sizes and types.  The fleet passed the RDYC clubhouse, saluting the High Sheriff of Dorset, before turning back out to sea.


The event was covered by the Dorset Echo and pictures are on their website.  Click here to see them.
