At Newcastle the RBC fleet and accompanying local Working Boats and Relay Boats gathered for a few days of R/R on the Town Quay in the centre of the rejuvenated water front, originally the docks. On Sunday morning the the High Sheriff of Tyne and Wear George Scott read verses from Psalm 107 with the Reverend Timothy Duff offering the Address. Following this short ceremony, which was accompanied by the flute-playing daughter of the Reverend, a reception was held in the Copthorne Hotel where a prizegiving was made for the best presented RBC boat and the Local working boat.

The Fleet now heads off down the east coast to Grimsby
