The Alnmouth skiff end of summer regatta will take place this weekend.

Shareholders, members, sponsors, crew and wellwishers are invited to the event, which begins at 1pm at the Old Lifeboathouse on Alnmouth beach on Saturday.

There will be a public unveiling of information boards which describe the history of the lifeboats and the lifeboathouse, which has been produced with the help of Alnmouth Local History Group, Alnmouth Parish Council and the Fred Bettes Memorial Bequest.

Skiffs from neighbouring areas have been invited with their crews for some froliocsome events in the sea and surf.

Should weather prevent launching from the beach the skiff will be launched from the slipway within the river estuary.
