Once again this will be an event for both sailors and the public of Macduff and the surrounding areas, with a very warm welcome for the teams from Norway and other parts of the UK.
A varied and exciting range of quayside events are planned to build on the highly successful community event of 2007, a diary management service may be required.
The events will include things for children, young people and adults, from stalls, food tables and activities, including a number of musical events.
Any organisation who wishes to participate in the QUAYSIDE events, please contact via Contact Us Page.
