Runswick Beach

Runswick Beach

Yorkshire cobles drawn up on the beach at Runswick Bay. The design of high bow for launching off open beaches into sometimes heavy seas and square stern for beaching, was well suited for the North Sea beaches. Clinker planking reflected their Viking ancestry, normally sailed with one dipping lugsail and  foresail, larger cobles sometimes added a mizzen sail.
