The Bridlington Sailing Coble Preservation Society,
Bridlington, Yorkshire, UK

The 2019 Bridlington (East Yorkshire) 'Sailing Coble Festival' will take place over the weekend of 27th-28th July.

This will be the 4th Festival organised specifically for the sailing coble, the traditional open fishing craft of the north east of England.

Every port, harbour and coastal village from the Humber to the Tweed would have scores of cobles, employed in the inshore fishing industry.

This Festival will bring together the largest gathering of sailing cobles in living memory and showcase some beautiful examples of this very fine sailing craft.

Bridlington is fast becoming the sailing coble capital of Great Britain.
