16th/17th June 2018, Unst, Shetland
The Simmer Dim Competition was started 15 years ago to raise money for Cancer Support
Charities. It involves an all-night fishing competition as near to the Summer Solstice as
possible, taking advantage of Shetland’s 24 hour daylight at that time.
The competition is a fun event which involves fishermen from all over the world, in the past
they have travelled from as far afield as Canada, USA, Spain and Iceland.
Since it’s inauguration it has grown annually, raising a total of £13,581 last year. This money
was split between three local Cancer Support Charities:- Cancer Shetland, CLAN Shetland
and MacMillan Nurses.
Davie McMillan and Stevie Palmer who organise the competition both work for Cooke
Aquaculture in Unst.
If you would like to donate to these worthy charities then please contact Davie McMillan on
