What a gorgeous weekend for the annual Staithes Lifeboat extravaganza. Duncan paddled his sea kayak to the Staithes harbour (see picture) from Runswick Bay with the Runswick Bay Sailing Club - he didn't realise it was a race, until he won it! Sadly, he was disqualified for not having sails... Staithes was packed with people having fun in the sun. York canoe club had a load of canoes for 'having a go' so the harbour was chaos with people playing in the boats. A great weekend as usual, and apparently the fireworks on the Saturday night were excellent. I missed all the action (I was working away) but will definitely be there next year. Dunsley's guests this week certainly chose the right time to visit.
