A good day for sailing
For a change yesterday we saw some blue skies and enjoyed a little warmth, sunshine, and a fresh breeze.
In short, a good day to go sailing! South Shields Sailing Club has it’s headquarters just behind the Litttlehaven Hotel at the bottom of River Drive. They have easy access to one of the few points on the River Tyne where the public can launch their own boats, skiffs, yachts etc. but because the slipway is located on a small pebbly beach, it is always hard work hauling those keels over the pebbles and shingle to get them back into the compound. Sundays are generally a good day to find many of their members sailing in the harbour, particularly the younger crews, more experienced sailors can be found outside of the piers.
