Air-Sea Rescue & Veteran Car Run 2013

These images were taken on the 3rd of November 2013 on Brighton Beach.
This was the date of 2013 London to Brighton Veteran Car run.

There was also what looked like an Air Sea rescue exercise taking place off Brighton Pier/Marina.  

With its unique atmosphere and camaraderie, the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run (staged specifically as a non-profit making veneration) commemorates the Emancipation Run of 14 November 1896, which celebrated the Locomotives on the Highway Act. The Act raised the speed limit for ‘light locomotives’ from 4 to 14mph, and abolished the need for these vehicles to be preceded by a man on foot waving a red flag. The Emancipation Run was first re-enacted in 1927 and has taken place every November since, with the exception of the war years and 1947 when petrol was rationed. The Royal Automobile Club has managed the run with the support of the Veteran Car Club since 1930
