Kirkwall Regatta?

Corn Slip - sailing dinghys. 1960?

A lot of spectators on the pier. What was the occasion - regatta perhaps? Can anyone name any of the people on the slip?

I agree. It certainly takes me back to my boyhood days.

Could be Alfie Flett in white breeks with his back to the camera? Any chance of a larger version to see if I can identify anyone, Sandy?
