Newlyn Fish Market - boats due to land.

Saturday, 5 December 2015

Stormy Saturday



Three big Irish fishing vessels adopt differing styles of dodging in the bad weather in the lee of the Scillys...


while back in Newlyn the Newlyn Harbour Lights team get the big tree erected in front of the harbour offices... 


which involves some tricky maneuvers with two forklifts...


as a trip of fish from one of the beamers heads for the fridge...


main tree man Justin makes last minute adjustments...


and attaches the guys...


the stormy weather proved too much for the Sapphire III so she is in to land for Monday's market...


along with two of the Ladram sisters...


and most of the fleet with just the bigger boats still fishing today off to the south'ard...


not that the weather will stop the crabber boys, the Emma Louise takes on a few tons of frozenbait.
