Once got trapped in a pub there, I think it was called Crab and Lobster. The sea was breaking onto the hard standing in front of the pub, we could have made a run for it between waves, but the manager insisted we waited till the tide had ebbed a little, it did wonders for his takings.

yes agree, great old Yorkshire place...where Capt. Cook first went to sea...and also an old haunt of smugglers of those days, especially this little creek. Well worth a visit to this old Yorkshire village...and the little RNLI museum is also worth a visit. Definitely a Seaman's village!!

Yes, but not in a coble! Considering the Hurtigruten but yet to convince the manager.

John, it was the fishing theme in this nice photo of Staithes that set my mind of about my one and only sea fishing trip up to the North Cape on a Long Liner out of Aberdeen courtesy of FOSNI which then linked me to your mention of wanting to go for a trip 'Up North'. Funny how the mind works. 15day trip on the Marco Polo from Newcastle 4th July running up the coast of Norway and then on to Murmansk on offer from www.newmarket.travel/nec
