A selection of scenes that captured the sights of Moelfre Lifeboat Day 2008, on 2nd August.
weather was mostly fine for Lifeboat Day 2008, with sunny intervals and a bit of
a breeze. This year the RAF helicopter arrived for a display of joint
rescue operations with the Moelfre Lifeboats. It was great to see the
village as full as ever with visitors who came to the event.
The Inshore Lifeboat
Since the last Lifeboat Day, Moelfre's old D-class inshore boat Kingsand (D-532), has been replaced with a newer and more modern D-class boat, Enfys (D-689). The pictures below show it being launched during the display.
Launch of the Robert and Violet
The launch of the Robert and Violet, Moelfre's Tyne Class All Weather Lifeboat numbered 47-013, was as spectacular as ever.

To finish, here are some pictures of the Robert and Violet, at the end of the display. The final picture is a crop of the previous one showing the front of the boat in more detail.
