Ships Blog 9th December 2014

Cold start this morning with frost on the pontoons. If you are down at the marina over the next few days may be to check your boat or to stay on board please be careful and maybe wear a life jacket whilst going to and from your boat. There are a few hardy fisherman out this morning but otherwise the harbour is empty, not a sail in site! Beautiful sunrise this morning over the harbour but as the old saying goes ‘red sky in the morning, then something about shepherds!’ Date for your diary, 21st February 2015 there will be a quiz at the Shipwreck. Geraint Pugh from the Shotley village and a berth holder at Shotley Marina will be running The London Marathon in 2015. He is hoping to raise £2000 for PHABKids or the Physically Handicapped  and Able Bodied Kids charity. All the berth holders from the marina are welcome to join Geraint in this event to help him reach the target of £2000. You can also donate through or contact him on
