John Cannellm who was accompanied by veteran crewman Percy Griffen said: "After 80 years in a lifeboat between us, we were looking forward to some swimming tips from Sharron! The show has been a great success this year with both the Caister Lifeboat and the Bernard Matthews stand receiving thousands of visitors."
