Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Boat Staithes Trip
Hi Hils, I'm pleased that you enjoyed the trip up to Staithes, I've had nothing but positive feedback. The crew were, I thought, brilliant and the display of the Rescue Boat fantastic, that is what all these lovely people support by donating to the fund, without their continued support the boat would not be able to run. As it happens when they were going back to Runswick they got a shout that a yacht was drifting onto rocks, given the coastline there and the state of the weather a potentially serious situation was avoided when the crew towed the yacht off. Another good result for all concerned and it is with the help of you guys that it was possible. I was thinking of trying the thank everybody personally but thought that I may miss someone,needless to say I didn't want to run the risk of that. If skipper,tides and weather permit we will do the same next year.

If anyone would like to become a friend of Runswick Bay Rescue Boat they do have a subscription available details can be found on their website and there is also a fund raising page that people can create to help their efforts.
