Race the Waves – Bridlington 2022

Race the Waves – Bridlington 2022

Race the Waves at Bridlington is the brainchild of Paul Garbutt, who had previously produced classic motorcycle social gatherings under his event name BACKFIRE Feel the Noise... Paul inspired by the world famous (TROG) "The Race of Gentleman" which has been held annually since 2012 on the Wildwoods beach in New Jersey USA, contacted Joe the "Staging Boss" which is the person who brings the vehicles to the start line, to help aid the formula which Paul wished to create for Race the Waves in Bridlington.

Greek Mythology – The Trojan Wars

Greek Mythology – The Trojan Wars

It is often said that the Greeks pretty much invented everything. Whether they actually invented storytelling or not I don’t know. But one thing you cannot deny is the fact they really knew how to tell a tale. They threw everything into it. Love, loss, battles, heroes, heroines, monsters, gods and adventures galore. One of my favourite films as a kid was Jason & the Argonauts (an ancient Greek tale). The skeleton battle was ground-breaking for its time, though it looks positively cartoon-like next to today’s CGI techniques. It’s still a great film, fundamentally because it’s a great story.  https://youtu.be/C-ZQGRM7GW0…

It's Friday - so it's time for another Top 5... and the weather is letting us know it is most definitely October, so here's our top 5 Halloween activities along the Yorkshire Coast.  There are various schools of thought when it comes to Halloween - there's the celebration of light (e.g. pumpkin making) or there's the scare yourself silly theory.
