Sailing in Whitby
Sailing yachts and boating are obviously extremely popular in Whitby and the surrounding area. Whitby has an excellent marina offering moorings to both locals and visitors, and the port is accessible for shallow draft in all states of the tide - and deeper ones at higher tide.
Only in really seriously heavy weather does it become inaccessible - but the harbour and marina are highly protected from the stormy seas at most times by the extensive piers and pier extensions. Heavy conditions from the North can however make the entrance untenable.

To Make You Smile
I went to the cemetery yesterday to lay some flowers on a grave. As I was standing there I noticed 4 grave diggers walking about with a coffin, 3 hours later and they're still walking about with it. I thought to myself, they've lost the plot!!
