    I wonder how many disabled people will be able to enjoy all the activity at the harbour. i understand disabled cars are to park at the swimming pool but this is a very long walk away for disabled people. Also i was told there is a park and ride bus but none of this has been advertised. does anyone know?

    Advertisement for this event has been very poor all round. I hope the harbour is cleaned up before then it was a right mess yesterday.

    For flip's sake - what's with all the negativity? The event has been well advertised in my opinion - possibly not the parking etc and maybe that could have been clearer - but if it is an issue for you just pick the phone up and ask them! Look through the events listings on this site and the email and phone number are there for you.

    There has been a supplement in the P&J today, and I am sure the Courier and Groat will have all the info you need. You must be hibernating if you havent read about the event-Caithness.org has run details of the programme, and the flottila has even been advertised in some national papers- I am sure it will go really well on Saturday, and lets hope there will be good weather.
    I have heard that traffic can park in the Bignold Park, or the Glebe (where the County Show traffic goes) - maybe there will be a park and ride???? But I can understand in the interests of safety roads are closed and no traffic is allowed in - there was a Highland Council advert in the Groat and Courier last week advising people of what road were shut and the dates and times they were to be shut. The shiny barriers are ready at the harbour side ready for use, and there are 5 lovely looking yachts in the harbour just now - cant wait to see all the boats on Saturday should be really good.

    Disabled parking is in the medical centre car park with any overflow to go into the swimmingpool carpark. Caithness dial-a-ride will then ferry less abled people to and from the Harbourfest. And as for the negative posts how about offering to go and help out with what you can see is wrong?.

    Thats good to know that there will be transport for disabled people from the swimming pool car park, havent seen that advertised, so hope people will know this and be able to come to the harbour now.

    Though i know the sight in wick harbour will be good, personally it will be too crowded for me, but, i shall just head a little further south and take pics of them (weather permitting) as they pass Sarclet or somewhere like that

    10am Heritage boats is open for visitors and the market stalls open. At 11am it's the offical opening.
    There is a free mini-bus service running from the Swimming pool/medical centre car park to the harbour for Disabled.

    I noticed that there will be parking in the Bignold Park and the Glebe. Where is the Glebe in Wick always thought it was in Thurso.

    There are Glebes all over Scotland; the word describes ground which belongs (or belonged to in the past) to a parish Church.

    Its the park used for the county show up by the Parish Church.
    Weather looks good too for a a nice walk through the town to the harbour.
    Also Bignold Park.

    hospital staff are issued with permits to park so that they can actually get to work without the hassle of findin an available space!!!

A lot of this information is now on the Orgs front page, too! Its going to be a brilliant weekend!!
