Introduction

NEMT_on_TyneWelcome to the boat section of the NE Maritime Trust Site

The histories will be posted on the boats pages but the details of the rebuilds (principally the Henry Frederick Swan and the Royal Diadem)  will be posted below. Time-lines of a sort.

Some links have gone awry and reduced the functionality of NEMT/Boats – apologies. While the boat pages are relatively easy to transfer to their new home the postings are more difficult. The posts up to mid January that needed transferring from the parent to the child (BOATS)  are now wondering around without a home. The images and posts need to be associated and put into their new homes but it takes time.

To Hartlepool – 2010

to_Harlepool_2010Our outward and return journey were each completed in about four hours with rather unsettled conditions to contend with. Rain and a big swell helped the tall ships sway, and us too, but that was no problem for our hardy sailors who took it all in their stride.
Many thanks go to our Chairman Mr Peter Weightman and friends, for the inclusion of our associate boats Favourite and Rachael Douglas at the festival.
