Following concerns over environmental issues, Weymouth Lifeboat Station will now be holding a ‘virtual’ balloon race.

The balloon tags, which would have been attached to the real balloons and released on 5th May, will now be placed into a drum and once every 5 days for the duration of the race, a number of balloon tags will be drawn, at random, from the drum with the balloon’s final destination being calculated as if the wind had blown the balloon over the previous 24 hours. The average direction of the actual wind along with the recorded strength of the actual wind will be used to identify the balloon’s final positions. The race will still run for 6 weeks as per the original race and the first four tickets drawn on the 16th June will be the winners.

Only 30% of the tickets will be drawn over the 6 week period as only about that percentage have their tags returned in a proper balloon race.

Tickets cost £1 and are on sale from Weymouth Lifeboat Station and Bussells Chandlers in Hope Street.
