Gallery: Weekend sea shanty in Harwich

CROWDS descended on the seaside town at the weekend for annual sea festival.

The Quay hosted all manner of activities throughout Sunday, including live music, historical re-enactments and a lobster raffle. Visitors could also step on board a floating light vessel and see the world’s oldest surviving motor lifeboat the James Stevens.

Onshore, the Golden Rivets band performed some sea shanties while Trinity House opened their doors for people to explore their state of the art buoy yard.
