All aboard for spectacular day by the sea

First published in

THOUSANDS of seadogs arrived on Harwich Quay for the annual Sea Festival.

Organised by the Harwich and Dovercourt Rotary Club, Harwich RNLI and the Harwich Harbour Board, a range of stalls and activities lined the roads to raise money for various local charities.

Along with live music throughout the day, duck racing, and a tug boat display, the magnificent Sea King helicopter swooped down in front of the awe-struck crowds to perform an imitation rescue.

There was also a stunning array of Rolls Royces lined up for visitors to admire.

The festival was opened by mayor Alan Todd, Rotary Club president John Wade and a Henry VIII impersonator provided by Trinity House.

Mr Wade said: “As far as I am concerned it went wonderfully."
