The ships also met on Sunday at the Bournemouth Air Festival - I was on Shieldhall. Attached - hopefully is a video of Waverley's salute and approach on departing before us. Numbers on Waverley were being quoted as between 500 and 700 - only 162 of us on Shieldhall which currently has a maximum capacity of 200 so plenty of space for us compared to the packed decks of the paddler.

Being offshore is also a great view point for the airshow - the Red Arrows used us as a marker and flew low overhead - for anybody considering attending it in future this would be a great option as well as enjoying all the charms and facilities of the Shieldhall. Highly recommended.
