* * * Lifeboat Week 2007 * * *

Plans for this year's lifeboat week are now well advanced and we are starting to really look forward to this exciting time in our year. This year, Lifeboat week will run from Sunday the 12th of August to Sunday the 19th of August. Each year we tweak the format and add to what is already a great fun week. This year is no exception. Last year's week was a great success with the Music, bar and BBQ in Prince Albert Gardens being tremendous fun. This year we are building on that and are planning to do two evenings in Prince Albert Gardens. The only thing better than a great party is two great parties! The programme so far is below, hopefully in the next week I should be able to add some detail such as which bands will be playing and any other events which will be going on. As with last year the crew will be creating two paintings helped by local artists Nina Camplin and Anonia Phillips, the photos which these will be based on have come from this blog and one completed picture will be auctioned on the pier on the Sunday and one will be auctioned on eBay, again, watch this space:

Sun 12th: Ladies Fair, Swanage Sea Front
Mon 13th: Darts Final, The Crows Nest
Tues 14th: Junior Pennant Sailing Race
Weds 15th: Fun Quiz, Swanage Conservative Club
Thurs 16th: Senior Pennant Sailing Race
Fri 17th: Flag Day + Live Music & Bar in Prince Albert Gardens
Sat 18th: Raft Race + Live Music, BBQ & Bar in Prince Albert Gardens
Sun 19th: Lifeboat Festival, Swanage Pier

Nightswimming deserves a quiet night.
Im not sure all these people understand.
Its not like years ago,
The fear of getting caught,
Of recklessness and water.
They cannot see me naked.
These things, they go away,
Replaced by everyday.
Nightswimming, remembering that night.

Looking forward to it John, as are the kids, despite their current distractions over here with the boats of Sydney harbour. Going kayaking in Middle Harbour, a northern off-shoot of the main Port Jackson, this coming weekend. Got a new waterproof camera so should get some good pics.
