In past years boat owners have displayed ingenuity and flair with surprising results. 'The themes can be fairly comical. We have seen boats parading as navy destroyers complete with cannons, the SS Minnow and a few odd looking pirate ships. Bikini clad figureheads are also popular amongst boat owners and spectators', Ritchie added.
This year the sail past will be lead by the visiting tall ship - Enterprize. Prizes are awarded to the best dressed boat and the best figurehead. There are no entry fees. The sail past is programmed for 1830 on Monday 24 January.
