Newlyn Raft Race and the day before the Fish Festival!


The stage is set...



the race about to begin...



with all hands looking confident their raft...


will do them proud...


the junior race went to the girl's in pink...


these guys look serious...


some can't resist an early scrap...


they're off!...


a crowded start...


and you wonder if some will make it round...


as they get lower...


and lower...


while the stability of others looks poor...


the Medery Girls eventually get underway...


the housing market has collapsed...


first ashore!...


the raft has to come out of the water...


and the traditional attack team second...


hed for the line...


they made it!...


the man at te finish...


over to the festival site...


the Irene returns...


as the crab arrives...


a short ceremony saw the Fish Festival team lay a wreath in remembrance of family and friends lost at sea...


the annual Blessing of the Fleet took place in the market...


as the site is all set for the next day...


ther port still works for some..


and the last of the mackerel men arrive...


and a crabber too alongside the market...


scalloper heads in...


it was the first...


Last Night of the Cornish Proms up at the Centre...


ready for the fish...



the first sardines arrive for the night.
