She said the event has been held a few times over the years and gives locals the chance to find out about some of the activities on offer at Kinghorn Loch.

Marilyn said: “The event was first held in 2007 when we decided to celebrate the completion of a new jetty at the lochside by holding a watersports day. It proved such a success that the event became built into the annual calendar. It is great that the clubs give their time freely to let people try something new.

There are also nice walks from the lochside where visitors can enjoy bird watching.
