Expectations are high for the Sailing Coble Festival in Bridlington this year, as it is expected to be the biggest and best yet.

It is hoped visitors and coble enthusiasts from along the coast will again support the festival in Bridlington for this unique maritime attraction.

All the vessels will be moored near to the Harbour Heritage Museum, which will be open with free admission, and can be seen sailing in the bay from the various vantage points along the seafront and the North Pier.
