Lifeboat exercise in Stromness Orkney

The Lifeboat crew at Stromness very kindly signed the joint OGA/RNLI forms which at the end of the year will be presented to the RNLI in Poole Dorset, the Headquarters of the RNLI. The Crew then very kindly invited us for a fast tour of the entry to Stromness harbour – I will let the images tell the story…
