Shetland Boat Week

Shetland Boat Week

This family friendly event, inspired by Shetland’s rich maritime heritage, is a full week long maritime experience taking place in August, with extended dates for the outdoor boat display on Hay’s Dock. The event encourages and promotes a passion for traditional Shetland boats, and a growing participation in keeping the sailing, boat building and other historic skills alive. 

In addition to the usual sailing and rowing experiences, there are plans to increase the shoreside activities and range of lectures and exhibitions, as well as the ‘on-the-water’ opportunities. Many events are drop-in and free to attend, but please note that some do require booking. Further details to follow.
