Aberdeen RNLI's ALB and Montrose RNLI's Shannon under took the short passage to visit Stonehaven RNLI for our traditional New Year get together.
It was good to see both crews and a chance for everyone to get together for a chat and some burgers at the start of the New Year.
We look forward to working together on some joint exercises in the coming year.
