Each year, a day is put aside in Bude for Lifeboat Day. This is to raise money and awareness for the RNLI.
Bude Lifeboat Day is always on or around the August bank holiday weekend and this year was no difference.
There were various demonstrations going on, including capsize drills and a search and rescue demonstration by the Bude and Padstow Lifeboat, with the helicopter putting in an appearance too.
Lifeboat day is not all water based though, other activities throughout the day included the Pasty Judging, Kids Crab Fishing Competition and much more. Ending with a big Hog Roast at 7.00pm, then drinking and merry goings on leading well into the wee hours of the morning. Oh and a nice big fireworks show to top it all off!
