The yachts from Fleetwood Marina sailed past, with a prize being awarded to the ‘best dressed’ boat.

The lifeboats then give speed and agility demonstrations.

Stalls selling homemade cakes and crafts, face painting, and a tombola and raffle were open to the public at the station, on Fleetwood Esplanade.

There was a special appearance from lifeboats from the neighbouring stations.
