Fisherman v Fireman Football Match and Wacky Raft Race

About

Join us for these traditional annual sporting events all in aid of the Fisherman and Firemen Charity fund.

Each year crowds gather on Scarborough’s South Bay beach to witness the Fishermen versus the Firemen football match followed by the hilarious fancy dress ‘crazy’ raft race from the harbour quayside.
