Keep up to date with all that’s happening at Amble Marina

16-07-2013 - Summer 2013

Our proposed development is waiting for a decision from Northumberland County Council, as soon as we hear we shall post the news here first.

Cruising in Company: Fourteen Dutch yachts from 9 to 17metres loa arrived for a three day stay at the beginning of July. This Round Britain Adventure Cruise 2013 (RBAC) were entertained at Coquet Yacht Club (CYC), the welcome was extended to a cruise of thirteen boats from Royal Quays Marina the following weekend. The range of boats included an Almtrawler, X-43, Breehorn 41, five Bavarias and a Koopmans 37. We will be organising a reciprocating cruise to the Tyne for next Spring/Summer - this will be open to all our customers with any size shape of boat – please let us know if you would be interested in taking part.

Yacht Charisma, based in Amble Marina, has won this year’s gruelling Castles and Islands Challenge, run by CYC, which took place on 28th and 29th June. Richard Morgan and his crew took the first prize by just four minutes, with Kris Burnett’s C-Beagle second. The race takes place over 24 hours with 55 miles of sailing and 30 miles of running. Well done, Richard and the crew of sailors and runners.

Ondine of Burnham – we are sad to see Ondine of Burnham leave us for different waters. Owner John Bolt has sold the 52-year-old Ondine, a Guy Thompson Seacraft, 9.1m loa constructed of mahogany on oak. John and his boat were one of the very first customers when Amble Marina opened in 1986.

After a late start to the season our anglers seem to be getting out and about and catching fish too. Last month saw the return of our friends from the west coast. Seven boats from the Blackpool Fishing Club and the Lancashire Boat Club arrived for their annual visit and seemed to bring the sunshine with them. The largest catch was so far this year was a 15lb Cod.
