RNLI Bressay Cruise 2015

The annual RNLI Lifeboat Open Day was held on Saturday, 13th June 2015 in Shetland. As well as the many attractions on Lerwick’s Victoria Pier, there was a NorthLink cruise to enjoy!

MV Hrossey sailed round Bressay and there was an impressive air and sea rescue demonstration! The cruise was well-attended, and it was a great fund raiser. We hope you’ll enjoy pictures of the day below!

The presentation at the end is to Moira Leask, wife of Bruce Leask, who is retiring after 15 years of service as the lifeboat coxswain. Bruce wasn’t there, being on the lifeboat at the time!
