We would love to invite all boat owners, sailors, paddle boarders and water lovers to join us to take part in one of our concluding moments of the 2022 edition of the English Riviera Airshow, our Jubilee Flotilla of water-craft.

On Sunday 5th June at 1.30pm, the Jubilee Flotilla will set sail from Roundham Head and sail across both Paignton and Preston seafronts to Livermead Head Torquay to delight the crowds on land. We encourage all participating vessels to dress in their celebratory red, white and blue best to mark the royal occasion…there will even be a prize for the best dressed vessel!

If you would like to join us in our seafaring celebrations to close out our weekend of festivities for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, please fill out the Expression of Interest form here and the team will be in touch with further information in due course.


The air displays will be over the sea in an area adjacent to Paignton beach. During the display times there will be a large exclusion zone in place, in which no vessel will be permitted to anchor or enter.

Due to new air display regulations, the planes cannot approach at low altitude over land – so the pilots need the exclusion area to be the entire length of the Bay west of the 003° 32’W line of longitude. This line will be marked with large red buoys approximately 500 metres apart.

The exclusion zone will be set up and controlled by Tor Bay Harbour Authority with the assistance of HM Coast Guard, and there will be a number of designated waterborne marshals.

All mariners are advised that they should follow the instructions and directions provided by the Harbour Authority and the duly authorised marshals.

Details of the exclusion zones for 2020 will be detailed on this page in due course.
