Newlyn Fish Festival countdown!


You can't have too many loos at a festival...


chalk marker, site map and a tape measure, all you need to prepare the site...


Truro Marquees have their work cut out...


a man on a mission, there's some seriois thought gone int the construction of the Swordy's raft...


progress, donkeys pulled fish off the boats 100 years ago....


painting the Sapphire II...


more than a few hours work on the Cornishman...


with both sides to re-build...


its a scaffolding job for the big blue boat...


amazing how rain water deteriorates a deck so quick when a boat is laid up...


more gear for the trawls going aboard the Cornishman...


mackerel boats inbound and outbound...


some had a good day...


and it's time to get the fish ashore quickly...


with the annual Newlyn Raft Race less than 24 hours away work here's a sneak preview of one competitor...


and their top secret oar design...


looks like the Swordy's sea trial were a success, Mr Ashworth will be pleased...


at this time of year the visiting yachts tend to be fit for longer passages...


en passage...


didn't see that coming...


the Snowdrop is looking good after her fall...


Gary M on the way in to land...


as Ed gets the bowline ashore...


these guys are happy to be part of the MSC Certified Cornish Hake... 


and looking to develop a bigger market for this prime fish...


a generous donation for the Gary M, this box of hake will be part of the big fish display at Monday's festival...


a good trip for the boys over two days in big tides...


the central festival site is taking shape...


not often there are three Tyne class lifeboats in the port...


Monday will see this quay thronging with fish fans...


away in the Bay the Iris gets a mainsail up...


nearly landed.
