Yorkshire Ship Enthusiasts

Postby RichardP » Mon Jun 18, 2012 3:26 pm

A ship society based in Leeds? Surely not. Yes it is true, and just think about it. Who else can provide you with day trips covering ports from Blyth to Kings Lynn in the East and Silloth to New Brighton in the West? Ok, so all the ships are a few miles down the motorway but at least we have plenty of choice for our monthly visits throughout the warmer(?) months from March to November. Why not broaden your horizons and join up?

More information coming soon.........................

So where has YSE been this year? To the Humber twice and once to Liverpool, where Fagelgracht was swinging in Seaforth Dock as she sailed for Hull

. Next Saturday we head for the Manchester Ship Canal, then in July we take a mini cruise from Killingholme aboard Stena Transit.

Can I join and book forr these? Sorry, these two are fully booked but you can join us at Immingham's Open Day on 22nd July if you join soon.

More details on YSE and how to join................coming shortly.

Now we are back from the Ship Canal where we were chased down the canal by M.S.C. Viceroy

it is time to tell you more about YSE. As well as the monthly visits programme, there is a Newsletter, published every 3 months, and monthly evening meetings in Leeds from September to March. All this for an annual subscription of just £10 a year.

Do you want to know more?

Then Email our leader, Roy Cressey, for more information on captain-cressey@supanet.com

And here he is ready to welcome you aboard.

And just to prove that you wont miss a thing with YSE. Here is Arcadia leaving the Mersey a day late on 23rd June after being held up by this summer's marvellous weather.

Are you as keen as ever to photograph the ships everyone else misses? Then you need to join YSE as soon as possible. Here is the latest example.
Fortunagracht-230612.jpg
Fortunagracht was delivered by her Chinese builders on 22/3/12. She was snapped in Vancouver in early May and since then has loaded a cargo of flourspar at Altamira in Mexico for Ellesmere Port. Here she is discharging at Ellesmere Port on 23/6. She arrived at night and left the Mersey at night, so unless you were with YSE sailing up the canal on a tug, there is a very good chance that you missed the photo.

A case of Fortuna favouring the brave, then. :)
El Presidente is looking in fine form.

These YSE adverts are getting more catchy than those pesky Meerkats ..... "CompareTheShipSocs - dotcom"

"Mere cats" .... very good .... I can see why the brain has to be kept warm.

And no-one has mentioned the invention of the 4th Earl of Sandwich (God Bless his memory) yet ...... :)
