In addition to providing a single weekend of family fun and participation, the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival sets out to promote, with the young in particular, awareness of, and participation in, the rich traditional culture and skills of Scotland's North East. This is achieved by way of an expanding programme of music tuition, sailing and boat building and participation in the visual arts.

All of this is made possible thanks to the people of Portsoy and District and our sponsors and supporters for 2006 who include:
