Adventurous teams are gearing up for the annual Lossiemouth raft race on Sunday.
The event which takes place at the East Beach is a great day out for the family with entertainment throughout the day.
One of the most unusual aspects of the race is a shield with the names of every winner engraved on it, which is handed to the winning team of the raft race alongside an unusual trophy – a framed and mounted toilet seat.
Flight Lieutenant Dave Hapgood, who is the officer in charge of the raft race committee, said: “The Lossiemouth Raft Race is a well-known and well-loved event in the calendar for us and this year I think it will be bigger than ever.
“We expect there will be a few more entrants from the 39 Engineer Regiment at Kinloss Barracks, so there might be some friendly rivalry between the RAF and the Army for that famous Toilet Seat trophy!
“This year’s event is being held in aid of two chosen charities; MFR Cash for Kids and the Make a Wish Foundation”.
The race is organised by the station in conjunction with Moray Council to thank the local community for their support throughout the year and to raise money for local charities.
Vast numbers of people are also expected to attend another popular event in the region the following Sunday.
More than 300 vehicles will be on display at Brodie Castle, near Forres, during the Historic Wheels rally.
John Mills, chairman of the Historic Wheels Club, said: “All of the cars on display are special and many fit the classic definition of ‘vintage’ in that they were built before 1930.
“There will even be a 1924 Silver Ghost coming over from Ireland, which must be worth a six figure sum.”
The event is running on Sunday, August 10, from noon-4pm. Entry is £5 for adults and £3 for children.
