Shetland Boat Week

Shetland Boat Week is an inclusive community event which celebrates Shetland's rich maritime heritage, and the links this has with the contemporary industry. This consists of a series of events, exhibitions, tours and activities over 7 days.

The first event was held in August 2016 and was well received so is to be repeated from 7th to 13th August 2017, with an extended and more varied programme.  Events will take place from Unst to Sumburgh Head, with much of the activity focussed on the historic Hay's Dock in Lerwick.

The programme of events will be released in May.
