Three Sheringham lifeboat crew members took on a team of youngsters and parents at the town's annual carnival tug of war contest
The event, which was compered by carnival chairman Stuart McClean, kicked off with a boys versus girls round which saw the girls' team pull the rope past the marker with ease.
The trio of crew members, who were led by Liam Cooper, then battled against the 16-strong girls' team who, helped by parents and grandparents, came out tops for a second time.
Mr Cooper, who has taken part in the tug of war for the past five years, said the event stood the crew in good stead for the Cromer versus Sheringham contest, which takes place during Cromer carnival week.
'We are three-nil up at the moment and I'm pretty confident we'll win again this year,' he added. 'It's great entertainment, it's a good laugh and it's a good old traditional event.'
