Does anyone know what has happened to the singaround led by Cobblers Monday during Whitby Week?

Try asking the organisers via the website / social media.
They will no doubt be very indulgent.

I know Mick had a bad fall at the end of last year's festival but not sure what the outcome of that was.

Glad you're mended, Mick. Will see you second half of the week hopefully.

The distinctive shape of the boat flat-bottomed and high-bowed arose to cope with the particular conditions prevalent. Flat bottoms allowed launching from and landing upon shallow, sandy beaches; an advantage in this part of the coast where the wide bays and inlets provided little shelter from stormy weather.

However, fishermen required high bows to sail in the dangerous North Sea and in particular to launch into the surf and to land on the beaches. The design contains relics of Norse influence, though in the main it shows Dutch origin.

Coblers Monday ~ a day off probably following a good catch at the weekend ~ a bit like Colliers Monday!
