Subject: Whitby Folk Boat Staithes Trip
From: Raggytash
Date: 09 Apr 10 - 07:16 AM

Hi All

I have spoken to Brian Clarkson, Skipper/Owner of the Esk Belle and "chartered" the boat for the now annual trip to Staithes during Folk Week. We are to sail to Staithes (weather permitting) on Tuesday 24th August, boarding at 3.30, sailing at 3.45. We should arrive in Staithes at about 5pm for an hour ashore, return sailing leaving Staithes at 6pm arriving Whitby about 7pm. Singing and playing all the way, and hopefully raising a bob or two for the Runswick Bay Rescue Boat. As always tickets are limited to a maximum of 80 so the earlier you put your name down the better.
Cheers

Raggy

OK might have some people who would be interested. Will get info to you, if so.

Are you planning to charge a £1 to use the toilet, like Ryanair :-)

Great idea, I'll put it to the skipper, every £1 going to the rescue boat, though knowing most of the folkies they'll just pee over the side, and thats just the ladies !

Save me 4 tickets please Raggy.

You will need every £1 you have when you are mugged for the raffle and to stop you been thrown overboard by the pirates. I noticed an increase in their number last year and am certain they are plotting....

Remember this year we are trying for a new boat as well as the running cost and new equipment.

Wheatman the boat leaves from the Old Brewery Steps, you can see them from the bridge in the centre of town, nearer the time I'll make sure we can meet up before sailing so you can get the tickets, however it only goes if the weather is suitable.

Where are the old brewery steps? Which side of the river? Near the ocean end or the inland end? We are very likely interested.

Hi Susan

The Brewery steps are on the west side of town, about a 100 yards from the swing bridge, if you have noticed, on your visits to Whitby, the big yellow tourist boat that takes people for trip around the bay, well thats the Esk Belle.

Cheers

If you stand on the swing bridge (seaward side) and look down the harbour you will see Brewery Steps & the boarding pontoon about 100 yards away on the left-hand side of the harbour. The lifeboat station is directly across the harbour from the boarding point, and makes a good reference point if the Belle is not at home when you look.

Whitby Coastal Cruises website is currently being redesigned so is not very informative today, but it has had a decent map in its previous incarnations, so I expect it will shortly do so again. There is at least a picture of the boat, so those who don't know it will know which vessel they are looking for.

I'm not expecting to work that day, but plans change regularly, so I may or may not be with you all, hope you get the right weather and have a great time.

Hi All,

tickets for the trip to Staithes aboard the Esk Belle are rapidly being allocated, as I previously mentioned we are limited to 80 people aboard, so if you do fancy a trip, reserving a ticket is highly recommended.

Cheers

Although nothing is compulsory I think songs of the sea would be most apt, be they shanties or songs of fishing and trawling or any other maritime activity. Fortunately there is a bar on board so we can wet our whistles

Whoops, sorry - I meant my Donegal cap, but I was in rush to go out so the error went unnoticed. It's a tweed cap, with black, red, blue, grey and brown devided into eight colours. I brought it at Quills' chain of shops in Glengariff, County Cork, this year, when we made our annual pilgrimage to The Gathering traditional festival. My stick makes me easy to spot!

Following my post of May 23rd I see the WCC website is still being updated, and no map showing yet so here is a link to a Google map. If you zoom into the harbour area just above the bridge you can see a little wiggle in the road just below where it says "The Dracula Experience", that is where you are heading.

Right now the bridge is broken in the "open to river traffic, but not to vehicles or pedestrians" position, and has been so for 5 days. We have no indication when repairs will be completed, but Folk Week plus Regatta without a bridge is too horrid to be contemplated.

So good thoughts please for the engineers, I'll advise further developments as they occur.

Thank you. I thought someone said it was on the abbey side of the river. That will definitely help if the bridge is still out. We will be coming from the ballad session at the Conservative Club that ends at 3 pm, which would be exciting to get there by 3:30 if the bridge were out.

Just in case no one has picked up from other threads, the bridge is now working again, so no problems getting across river, apart from the usual ones of too many pedestrians and too much traffic!

Was talking to Raggytash tonight. Seems the trip is well and truly going to be FULL.

Be kind to him. If you are a singer and prepared to have a go let him know (preferably on here or in advance) He can't be expected to remember everything from year to year and doesn't want to miss anyone who is brave enough.

And NO he hasn't bribed me to put this on instead of singing ;-0
