July 2013:

ITV visited Bridlington during July 2013 to film Adrian Edmondson aboard Three Brothers for a programme called ‘Ade At Sea’. We don't know when it will be broadcast so look out for it.

Adrian was accompanied by three grand-daughters of Baker Siddall, the builder of the boat. They are, left to right, Iris, Karen and Mary. Coble Society member Mick Lowe is in the background.

On Tuesday, 23rd July, HRH The Prince of Wales visited the coble during his tour of the harbour. Chairman Mike Wilson was introduced to the Prince as were John Clarkson and Joe Gelsthorpe, the two men who refurbished the Three Brothers.

You can also see BBC Look North’s piece by going to Youtube and searching for ‘Bridlington Sailing Coble June 2013’.




June 2013:

The discarded timber that was used as canvas for paintings and then featured in Gallery 49, gained around £500 for the Society.
