Staithes Lifeboat Weekend

The annual Staithes and Runswick Bay Lifeboat weekend took place this weekend here on the North Yorkshire coast. The event aims to raise the profile of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution and the work carried out by the volunteer crews by holding various events throughout the weekend.

The small streets weaving through the Yorkshire village are festooned with red, white and blue bunting which is strung between the houses.

Members of the public could watch from the harbour wall as the lifeboat launched and made it’s way over the North Sea on a routine training exercise.

Fortunately, this weekends’ event passed without major incident and the Search and Rescue team from Cowbar, an area of Staithes, was not called out!
