Dunbar Lifeboat Day


Today was the Dunbar Lifeboat Day, a gala down at the harbour where everyone turns out to show their support for the lifeboat crew.  These brave men and women risk their lives to save others in distress and they are all volunteers.

The Dunbar Lifeboat Day is a mixture of fundraising and town fete and the highlight of the day was an rescue exercise just off the harbour with a Royal Navy Sea King Mk5 Search and Rescue helicopter from HMS Gannet, near Prestwick.



Lifeboats have been launching from Dunbar Harbour for over 200 years and the crews have been honoured with 12 awards for gallantry. Today, the station operates two lifeboats – an inshore D class and an all-weather Trent class lifeboat.  CLICK HERE for more information on Dunbar Lifeboat Station.

The day started with the traditional parade down the High Street to the Victoria Harbour where the Lifeboat was launched to start the Lifeboat Day.  

As well as stalls and a funfair there were plenty of other activities and entertainment around the harbour.

Here are some of the images taken today from the Dunbar Lifeboat Day 2015.
