Ex-lifeboat rally to be held in Fowey
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
The free event takes place on Saturday 4th July, and will see former RNLI boats from all across the South West travelling to Fowey for the annual ex-lifeboat rally.
The rally will give members of the public the chance to head aboard one of the vessels, and have a look around, as well as meeting the owners who ensure that they are well maintained and looked after.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the rally, and will see boats arriving from as far as Salcombe and Portishead. Also featuring this year is the former Looe rowing lifeboat, as well as the Michael Stevens, which was involved in the evacuations from Dunkirk.
The rally is a great day out for all of the family, and gives the chance for a closer look at a range of old lifeboats, as well as learning more about them and celebrating all of the hard work they consistently put in.
The lifeboats are available to be seen by the public from 11am until 4pm, at Berrill's Yard, which is opposite the lifeboat station. There will also be sea safety demonstrations, as well as a procession of the lifeboats heading down the River Fowey at 4.30pm.
After such a great day out, you may be looking for restaurants in Fowey for the evening, so why not book a table with us her at the Cormorant, and enjoy our fine dining menu with beautiful views overlooking the river.
