Staithes RNLI Lifeboat Weekend 2024

Join us for our 2024 lifeboat weekend.

 Fireworks light up the sky over a harbour with boats.

Starting with the famous Nightgown Parade on Friday 16 August 2024 our lifeboat weekend is packed full of activities for all the family. See our lifeboat exercise with flank stations lifeboats, on Saturday afternoon, and partner search and rescue agencies (subject to operational requirements).

Later on Saturday afternoon a fiercely contested race from the Lifeboat Slipway takes place with participants vying for victory on a diverse array of homemade rafts.

Festivities on Saturday are drawn to a close with fireworks by the G2 Fireworks team.

Sunday morning starts with the world famous duck race where hundreds of yellow ducks are willed towards the finishing line which is by the lifeboat slipway.

The weekend finishes with poignant and moving thanksgiving services both at Runswick Bay and Staithes.
