Anstruther Muster - Friday 15 to Sunday 17 August 2014
The 2014 Muster will again be part of the Anstruther Harbour Festival, which is a community festival with the aim of celebrating the maritime traditions of the historic royal burghs of Anstruther Easter, Anstruther Wester and Kilrenny & Cellardyke.
The Anstruther Harbour Festival will have a wide range of maritime-themed events and activities for the benefit of visiting yachtsmen, local residents and holidaymakers alike
The 2014 Muster will include the East of Scotland Boat Jumble, with specialist boating and chandlery traders on Saturday and Sunday
And the Muster will again include the Classic Boat Rally of historic yachts, motorboats and working boats, with information sheets on each boat displayed at the quayside - Saturday and Sunday
Notice to mariners - for those thinking of bringing a boat to the Muster, there are a limited number of pontoon berths that can be booked with the harbourmaster on 01333 310836.
However no booking is needed for the berths on the wall of the outer harbour wall. Note also that the pontoon area practically dries and deep keel boats will need to lie against the harbour walls.
In 2013 a new row of pontooons was installed on the outer wall of the inner harbour, hence this section of the quayside is no longer available to deep keel boats. Deep keel boats will still be able to lie against the wall of the outer harbour
The inner harbour wall at the middle pier is reserved for classic boats entered in the Muster's Classic Boat Rally.
Boats wishing to register for the Classic Boat Rally should contact ASC Hon Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org, criteria for a classic boat being generally wooden or steel hulled, but also GRP if a descendant of a wooden hull design and with enough wood trim to pass as a classic, or boats of “classic” design of any period or construction form, subject to the discretion of ASC Hon Secretary.
ASC awards a trophy for the Best Classic Boat at the Muster,and for Furthest Travelled Boat, Oldest Boat and Smallest Boat
During the Muster information sheets describing the design, construction and history of each Classic Boat are displayed at the quayside adjacent to each boat
