The Royal National Lifeboat Institution - Saves Lives at Sea



Kinghorn RNLI Lifeboat Station is inviting everyone to their annual Kinghorn Loony Dook on 1st January 2018 at 11am.

This will be the seventh year the event has been held, and it continues to grow in popularity year, now attracting nearly 100 ?dookers?.

The Dook begins at 11am at Kinghorn Beach, with the charge to the water starting near the Lifeboat Station.

Lifeboat crewmember Mel McGarva asks ?what better way to shift a sore head than to join us for a new year dook?

?It?s fantastic fun which can include the whole family. There is no entry fee, but of course if you would like to get sponsorship and raise money for the RNLI at the same time, that would be great. Sponsor forms are available on our website.

?It?s always great to see so many people at the beach. It?s a real community event, and great fun too!

?The lifeboat will launch to look over the event, and you can come along and speak to the crew and find out a bit more about the RNLI. We are also looking for more volunteers at the station, so you can meet the crew and find out more.

?It costs over ?1,500 per year to train crewmembers, which is funded by events such as the Dook, with people often challenging themselves to take part!?

The event starts at 11am, at the Lifeboat Station on Kinghorn beach. There will be hot tea and coffee available.

Sponsorship forms and terms and conditions are available from Kinghorn Community Centre, the Dragon?s Den, the lifeboat station or online at and further details are available by emailing
