Small yachts in South Shields harbour

South Shields Harbour

Members of South Shields Yacht Club enjoy one of their regular competitive races in South Shields harbour. The Yacht Club trains young sailors and has competitive races every Sunday morning, in the background we can see North Shields fish quay and the Highlight and the Lowlight (the two white towers erected in the 1800’s to aid navigation into the River Tyne.)

This shot was taken from the South Pier.

  6. I like the photograph. The boats seem very small and the sea or water so huge. I don’t know what it is but maybe it is my monitor.
