The grand launch of this event took place at Wick on 23 June, with stopovers planned at Lybster, Helmsdale, Invergordon, Cromarty and Buckie, before the Flotilla joins the Scottish Traditional Boat Festival at Portsoy from 29 June to 1 July.

An exceptionally large turnout of people from Caithness braved the wet and showery day to see the boats berthed at Wick Harbour. Various forms of musical entertainment were provided through the day, along with range of maritime style fun activities, including music, dance, story telling, traditional crafts and good Highland food and hospitality.

Over thirty traditional boats, many of which fished the Moray Firth early last century were on display. Boats came specially from Norway, the Faroes and Shetland to take part in this historic event.

The event was officially opened at 11 am by Ms Anne Dunnet, Lord Lieutenant of Caithness.
