BRIDLINGTON FUND

Our Partner

It is great to be working with the Bridlington Sailing Coble Preservation Society who are celebrating their 40th anniversary this year. The group was formed in 1983 to maintain, preserve and sail the 40 foot coble Three Brothers, built locally in 1912 by the Siddall boatbuilding family and which had been restored under the ownership of the Bridlington Harbour Commissioners. Since then further cobles have been added to the fleet as well as volunteers all keen to maintain and restore these amazing vessels.
