Staithes Lifeboat Weekend coming up!

Staithes will be buzzing this weekend, with the much-loved Staithes & Runswick RNLI Lifeboat Weekend taking over the village and harbour. The weather forecast is fabulous, with sunshine and a busy breeze, promoting plenty of action on and off the water. There are events planned in both Runswick (a 90-minute walk from Staithes, along the Cleveland Way) and Staithes, and even one in between: the Runswick Bay yacht club usually have a race between the two harbours. Duncan actually won this last year in a sea kayak but was disqualified for taking a short cut beneath the cliffs while everyone else went around the buoys!! I think he should have got a special award for effort... Anyway, it should be a fun weekend; Dunsley ( is busy with guests but we're hoping to nip over for the day. So, we might see you there!

Picture: the Staithes lifeboat on its new ramp on the west side of the harbour; the pale yellow building on the far side of the harbour is the Cod & Lobster pub... the perfect location for a glass of something refreshing!
