Does anyone here sail on the Yorkshire coast or Humber?

I'm from Hull and am wondering if anyone here is in the same area. I'm putting together a plan to get myself cruising that involves getting training, saving for a boat, joining a club (Humber Yawl Club?) and taking time off work to make it happen. Ultimately I'd like to take something like a Sadler 26 or Albin Vega to the South Pacific, but I'm thinking that an initial adventure day sailing up the Yorkshire coast in something small and light (Wayfarer/Corribee 21/Leisure 17) might be a wonderful compromise between adventure and staying alive.

Phil, I think that is a great idea. If you keep the weight of a yacht down then it can be trailered which increases the area you could sail. For example a holiday on Lake Windermere. Or take her up to Oban and sail the Scottish Western Isles and the Caledonian Canal. This is a superb cruising area with some sheltered waters.

I see there is a really cheap Corribee on Appollo Duck at the moment:

If the budget stretches this is quite smart and comes with bilge keels so can dry out:

Thanks for the encouragement! Those two boats look good, and if I get a keelboat I would like bilge keels. The bigger thing for me right now is planning when and how to do it because I work in China. There are training centres here, but no clubs. The best workaround I have is to get some basic training and then just take time off work and get on with it. Day sailing a little boat around Britain with no obligation to finish or go out in bad weather feels like an achievable goal. My family are in Hull, so if I joined a club I could use it as home base.

This way I wouldn't be trailering, but sailing near Hull and then going off further when I felt like I could do it without dying.
