Anstruther Muster 3-5 September 2021
From Bill Kennoway on behalf of the Anstruther Harbour Festival Trust
The Muster will have a flotilla to May Isle on Sat 4th – with Historic Boats and local and visiting boats taking part – with a reception in the marquee after, and with the award of the usual trophies for Furthest Travelled/Smallest/Best Dressed/ Best Classic etc plus pennants for Muster visitors. The Reaper wont be in the Flotilla but will be open to visitors with below deck tours showing her restoration in progress.
The Harbour Festival entertainment programme includes :
- Skipinnish top traditional band on evening of Friday 3rd – tickets are now on sale on the Festival website but are going fast – https://www.anstrutherharbourfestival.org/
- Music and dance all day Saturday and Sunday
- Market stalls Friday to Sunday
- ‘Storm’ 30 ‘ eco-warrior puppet performing on Sunday 5th – https://news.stv.tv/video/scotlands-largest-puppet-unveiled-ahead-of-climate-event?top
If you’re not able to bring your boat you might like to come along to Anstruther to see what’s on.
To book a berth on a pontoon or wall of the inner harbour contact the harbourmaster on 03451 555555 ext 461541 – you may get a voicemail but it will be responded to. Or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
There are only a limited number of pontoon berths left for the Muster weekend, but there are plenty berths on the outer harbour piers which have had brand new ladders installed since the last Muster, and which will be on a first-come first-served basis. Also the harbour has been dredged so with neaps at the Muster weekend most boats will manage to get into the outer harbour at most states of the tide. Unfortunately the harbourmaster at Pittenweem has advised that it will not be permissible for Muster visitors to berth in Pittenweem as deep-keel boats have done in previous years
But the good news is that the traditional Muster harbour dues of £15/20/25 for 1/2/3 nights will apply, both to pontoon and pier berths at Anstruther – normal harbour dues are a flat £20 per night – they’ve dropped the absurd £40 entry charge they had up to 2020. Any classic boats attending will have their harbour dues paid by the Festival
