Even the weather went mad. It was not raining. It was not windy. Bright sunshine, but very, very cold.
To raise money for our wonderful lightboat, the"Willie and May Gall", some foolhardy, nay brave, souls leapt off said lifeboat and swam across the harbour.
Here goes FC. I should point out that if the surf is right, no matter the temperature, the surfers are out in force on the beach, but they have wet suits.....
The Christmas Fairy?
A cold Christmas Fairy. 70 years old. Same age as our Christmas Fairy!
This is the 15th life boat from Fraserburgh since 1806 when the first lifeboat in the country was launched at Fraserburgh.
There have been many tragedies over the years. Some boats were self righting, some were not. Until 1915 oars and sail powered the boats. 13 lifeboatmen have lost their lives over the years.
Even today the lifeboat is crewed by volunteers. And not just men.
Thats it folks, Happy Boxing Day.
