Wick Lifeboat Harbour Evening
What looked like an even bigger crowd than last year turned out on a lovely evening for the Wick Lifeboat Harbour Evening.  Incredibly well stocked stalls were deluged with customers in the fish market.  The raft race got off to a cracking start but the favourites in a very fast raft got into difficulties and turned over with a strong fire brigade team taking the first position.  Dancers from various groups put on displays and a range of raffles, balloon races and other fund raisers all seemed to do very well.
