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.
