Scarborough Lifeboat © Keith JordanWatching a lifeboat being launched must be one of the best days in the life of any small boy under the age of one hundred years. To see one launched into the raging fury of a gale is particularly exciting. Here the Scarborough Lifeboat, from the town of the same name in North Yorkshire, England, is being launched in calmer surroundings. The picture is in Keith Jordan's archive at YorkshireCoastCAM.co.uk for the first week of August 2003. There is more…

The web page also contains pictures of the 2003 National Scout Car Races (you may be more familiar with the terms 'soapbox derby' or 'pinewood derby'), the sailing ships 'Grand Turk' & 'Hispaniola', and a yacht race! What a grand day out at the seaside. Scarborough was the place where we had the best fish & chips we have ever eaten, in a café just across the esplanade from the Viking Longship fairground ride.
