Thousands of people attended a free harbour festival which has been described as a "roaring success". 

On Saturday, June 29, an area of Southwold's Harbour was cordoned off for a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the town's sailing club. 

The area was fully decorated with a large outdoor stage, catering trucks, a mobile bar and classic boats with colourful maritime flags. 

An array of local musicians including the Lowestoft Longshoremen and Indi-rock band Helix headlined the festival.

Classic boats returning from a race to the White Hart in Blythburgh and races between the Walberswick Women's Rowers were among the special attractions for visitors to enjoy.

Event organisers Southwold Sailing Club said: "It was a roaring success and a truly magical afternoon of sunshine, music and maritime celebration.

"We have been overwhelmed by the glowing feedback and rave reviews about the awesome, brilliant and excellent event. 

"We hope with all the fundraising we will be able to keep the club going for another 75 years."
