Tobermory lifeboat on Lifeboat Day 2018

This year’s Tobermory Lifeboat Day theme is Harry Potter! Come along and enjoy a great day out.

A taste of what to look forward to:

· Tour the Severn class lifeboat

· Meet some of Hedwig’s pals with Kintail Birds of Prey

· Free lifejacket clinic and safety advice

· Barbecue

· Loch Fyne Oysters

· Music from local band ‘Flora’

· Lots of games to play and stalls to browse

· Raffle with amazing prizes (tickets can be bought on the day or in advance from the RNLI shop, Seafare and at the Salen Show)

The day will kick off at midday with a display from the Seahawks Cheerleading Academy.

There will be a fancy dress parade (for all ages!) at 1pm, judged by a special guest from Hogwarts.

The raft race will take place at 3.30pm. Please register at the clock tower at 3.15pm. Lifejackets must be worn (no water balloons please, they contribute towards plastic pollution in the bay)

We look forward to seeing you there.
