Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Saturday, 19 December 2015

Last Saturday before Christmas - a busy day in the harbour.



Las time of landing...


for the Britannia V...


as French trawler Itasca takes ice...


local French consul Andrew Munson takes a big step aboard...
 


while the crew check the mooring ropes...


and continue mending the trawl... 


the beam trawler Admiral Gordon leaves the ice berth and heads off to the gaps...


the crabber Emma Louise...
 


lands her days' work... 


the heavy skies hang over Newlyn this morning...


reminiscent of the weather some 34 years ago on the day the Penlee lifeboat was lost with all hands and that of the crew of the coaster Union Star...


the new bulwarks are coming on on the Galilean...


as the Cornishman makes her last landing before Christmas...


and the fish head off to the fridge on the market for Monday's auction...




nets for sale...


and a 3/4 ton Spencer Carter net hauler...


the prom gets a wetting.
