Newcastle Old Boat Gathering

The north east maritime trust are organising a gathering of old wooden boats, the most likely venue for this is the NE1 marina at Newcastle Quayside. I was wondering if you knew of any steam boat owners would be interested in attending either with or without boats.

Around a dozen vessels have already agreed to attend, including 3 Seine netters and a sailing cobble from the Northumbrian fishing heritage trust as well as several cobbles belonging to the NEMT and its members.

The river at this point is salt water, any vessels that may wish to attend please contact Philip Smith  NEMT on 01915361851 or
