DUNBAR LIFEBOAT PAYS UNEXPECTED VISIT!

17/02/2004

The Kinghorn lifeboat crew were out on a routine training exercise when they noticed an orange boat in the distance moving quickly up the Forth.

Suspecting that a neighbouring lifeboat was invading their "patch" they decided to investigate! They caught up with the boat just off Kinghorn to discover that it was indeed another RNLI Lifeboat - the Trent class lifeboat and eight crew from Dunbar, East Lothian.

The crew were invited back to Kinghorn station for coffee and biscuits, before they headed off again to meet HMS Ark Royal, which left Rosyth later in the afternoon.

The Dunbar crew managed to capture some pictures of the meeting, some of which are available in our picture gallery section on the website: http://www.kinghorn.org.uk/gallery.php

We would like to thank the boys for coming along, and to let them know they are welcome back any time!
