Summary

This film shows scenes from a family outing to the Isle of Wight, that includes: a large group on a countryside walk; watching the boats and a Hovercraft leave a slipway; and waving off a family group aboard the ferry (Carisbrooke Castle). The second part shows the Sandown Carnival, with a town crier riding a motor scooter, beauty queens, and children in fancy dress costume. Final scenes show a car ferry docking at a slipway.
