Bridlington Sailing Coble Festival, 13th-14th August

Coblegram Special Edition Bridlington

Coble enthusiasts are planning a Sailing Coble Festival at Bridlington on the 13th–14th August this year, which sounds like a great idea.

It is being organised by the Bridlington Sailing Coble Preservation Society and The Coble and Keelboat Society, and is sponsored by the local Independent Shellfishermen’s Co-operative, and will bring together the largest gathering of sailing cobles anywhere in the British Isles in recent years.

Four locally based sailing cobles, Three Brothers, Imperialist, Madeleine Isabella and Gratitude; will be joined by the two new cobles; Free Spirit and Misnomer. Christina from Mevagissey and Grace from Staithes will also attend, and a number of other coble owners have expressed interest – and there is even talk of the North East Maritime Trust attending with the coble Royal Diadem II and a 40ft restored seine net keelboats.

Read all about it in the latest Coblegram.
