Traditional sailing vessels are at the heart of the festival and if you would like to join the flotilla of heritage boats which drop anchor in Portsoy’s harbour for a weekend of celebrations, please get in touch.

Raft Race

Our annual raft race is always a key highlight for festival visitors, we are looking for teams of three people to take part in their own, handcrafted raft and see who can make it from one end of the harbour to the other. Fancy dress is optional and always welcomed!

Fun Run

Sign up for our fun run which is open to children aged 5-12 and begins at Wally Green with a short tour around Portsoy.


We are looking for five teams of two people to take part in this new festival feature. You must be aged between 10 and 16 to take part and bathtubs and paddles will be provided
