Blessing of the Boats


A good atmosphere and many visitors in and around the harbour for Lifeboat Day. Lots to see and enjoy. The religious service of the Blessing of the Boats will take place and sometimes they have the demonstration of a "rescue" by the Lifeboat took place. Many attractions, shops, cafes and bars along the harbour, something for everyone.
