For a memorable day out, you can sail up the coastline to the small fishing village of Sandsend on a Whitby Coastal Cruise. With sea shanties and tales of Captain Cook’s voyages at the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, it’s an invigorating coastal adventure. For a more laid-back view of Whitby’s naval history, explore the harbour, brimming with colourful vessels including trawlers, cobles and pleasure-craft. A weekend not to be missed is the ever popular Whitby Regatta taking place annually in August with an abundance of events including yacht and rowing races finished off with a spectacular fireworks finale.
