Whitby's only TWIN ENGINED charter boat. She is Whitby's most popular, powerful and fastest angling boat winning more angling competitions and daily prizes over the last 30 years than any other boat in Whitby. Sponsored by the top name in sea angling "SHIMANO" Shy Torque III is the best known of all the charter boats in Whitby and probably the North East coast and has a track record second to none.

The boat is available for filming with television companies or for private hire too. We can hire the boat out to the council and also any diving groups.

The boat is fully licensed and insured and has a code of practice "Category 2 " with the RYA allowing us to travel up to 60 miles. (Please ask to see certificate if required) Only a handful of Whitby charter boats hold this category of license and insurance. If you sail beyond the boats designated area of work, then the insurance for that boat (which covers you as an angler) does become null and void. It's a good idea to check in case of any eventualities!!!

For your best chances of a great days fishing from Whitby the Shy Torque III is your best option by far. If you want to book the boat as a club we do a special rate for teams of 8 or less. Please ensure that you have the full money for the places you have booked (whether it be full boat or individual bookings) as we will have been turning people away on the strength of your booking.

Next year’s dates have now been sorted for the competitions here at Whitby 2019.
The Spring competition dates are April 13th to April 28th INC. Big cash prizes!!
The Summer competition dates are June 22nd to July 14th INC Get yourselves a trip booked to have a chance of winning a prize worth up to £5000.00 in pound notes!!
The late Summer competition dates are September 7th to September 22nd INC You can book any places as from now. 07733 233352. 01947 603472

When you consider that some of the other charter boats in Whitby are charging on average around £50.00 for a day’s fishing (this includes the slow boats!) then the £53.00 that we charge for individuals for the day is more than worth it. We can give you so much more time fishing than the others!!! Plus with the added advantage of staying completely DRY in wet conditions.

The boat is just under 40ft in length and fitted with the "Islander" style wheelhouse. There is oodles of space per angler (unlike some of the boats in Whitby) as we can fish right around the boat from stem to stern! The "ANGLERS CABIN" also ensures that you can arrive at the fishing areas DRY and arrive back home DRY. There are no other charter boats in Whitby (in our size range) that can offer a full team TOTAL cover like we can.
REMEMBER, if you are paying less than what we charge there WILL be a reason for it!!! Individuals are welcome on the boat. Gift vouchers are available for trips every year and would make an excellent gift / birthday / Xmas present.
The full 2019 tide table for Whitby is now available. Please call for details or visit the site.

About the Skipper:

Started going to sea with my Dad when I was just 5 years of age !! Started working as a charter skipper full time at the age of 18. Over 40 years experience at sea!! This is my full time job ( not just working on weekends ) working every day the weather permits 12 months of the year. I have been working as a charter skipper longer than any other charter skipper in Whitby. Over the last 25 years we have won more angling competitions than any other boat in Whitby ! Very proud of the boat keeping her in immaculate condition at all times. We also have a crewman when we are taking newcomers to the sea angling game. Both Adam (my son) and myself will be there to assist you throughout the day to try and make your day as enjoyable as possible.

    Had a great day out on the Sky-Torque yesterday, Rich kept us on the fish all day, listening to the radio chatter others weren't so lucky. First time out in Whitby for me and my lad David, but both enjoyed it and will be back soon highly recommended

  • 5-star Simon Blenkin (05/11/2018)

    Brilliant day out with rich the fushing was hard but he managed to put us on the fish he was really helpfully with my two boys it was jorgeys (aged 10) first sea fishing trip and he caught the biggest of the day I would highly recommend using rich for any trips out of Whitby

    Skippers Reponse: Cheers Simon. Really enjoyed the day myself too. I love watching the kids catching fish and their smiling faces. You have a couple of class anglers there mate! See you again soon hopefully.
    Best regards
    Rich

    Had a days wreck fishing on Shy Torque with Rich Ward during the summer festival. I’ve fished from Whitby on and off for over 40 years on a number of different boats and there is some very good and knowledgable skippers there but after seeing Rich at work he is certainly at the top of the list , his boat is kept immaculate, and there is lots of space to fish as you can use the full length of the boat whereas on other boats only the rear is fishable Rich worked hard sailing from wreck to wreck to find fish , to be honest the fishing was slow but everyone on board caught some fish for the table. I highly recommend anyone who’s into wreck fishing to try Shy Torque you won’t be disappointed.

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks for the review Ivan. Sadly, the fishing the other day was a little slow but we always put 110% effort in at all times as you know. Always a pleasure to sail with you mate. See you next on the 2nd July.
    Thanks
    Rich

  • 5-star Dave K (06/11/2017)

    Thanks for another great day out rich great fishing on a lovely boat once again you proved your still the best skipper in Whitby

    Skippers Reponse: Hi mate. Thanks for the review. Always nice to know that you are being appreciated. I'm looking forward to your next trip with us early December. Let's hope for another cracking day!
    Tight lines!
    Rich.

  • 5-star Haydn Geldard (04/11/2017)

    Excellent as always. Rich shows his experience when he has taken us out. each trip he doesn't disappoint and never has, Always made our lines fish heavy, my partner Janine had the heaviest of the day. was tempted to push her overboard but relised we couldnt shout MAN overboard!! :). Anyway to cut a long story short Rich Ward is highly recommended by myself and my friends alike

    Skippers Reponse: Thanks Haydn. Really pleased you and Janine enjoyed your day. Fingers crossed for similar fishing next time. Thanks for the top tip with the car too mate. Much appreciated!! All the best to you.
    Rich.

  • 25/03/2019 Fishing Report by Rich Ward

    25 Mar 2019 by Rich Ward

    Fished the "Wall" at the weekend with our Polish team from Birmingham

    Mariusz Marczyk and his mates enjoyed their day and went home with a nice few fish each.
    Best fish of the day, a Ling of 9lb 12 oz fell to Dainius and was the very last fish of the day!! Dainius caught the fish on a strip of frozen Mackerel on a pennell rig.

    Cheers and tight lines

    The uptiding is up and down at present with an odd good day and and a few more slack days!!
    The last uptiding trip we did with just a couple on board.

    Bill Barraclough joined us and was very happy with his catch of a dozen cod (4 undersized released) plus a Lesser spotted Dog fish.

    Next date with room (partially booked) is next Friday where we have spaces left for a couple. A cracking wrecking tide too at 4.2m
    Excellent wrecking tides from Wednesday (27th)

    Dates are also available this week and we will sail with a minimum of 3 anglers.

    If you fancy joining us please contact me on any of the number below or mail me.
    Cheers and tight lines

    20.03.2019.

    A mixed group aboard the boat yesterday. A few regulars and a few newcomers sailing with us.

    With the forecasts being so good (for a change!) we had a run offshore to some outer ground marks and had a nice steady days fishing. The water wasn't overly clear and a lot of fish were borderline size and foul hooked on the shads. These were returned safely. The majority were on the baited rigs. Mackerel and lug worm doing the best.

    Best fish was only weighed in at a shade over 5 lbs. A nice Pollack caught by Tony Barratt who also ended up with the best bag of the day.

    Tomorrows trip will be uptiding at anchor on these monstrous Spring tides. We have room for a few more anglers on that one. All welcome to join us.

    Tight lines for now

    19.03.2019.

    A short run offshore with today's 4 lads proved fruitless with the water being very cloudy after the last run of huge Northerly swell. We decided to run back inshore and drop the anchor where the lads picked up a nice few Codling mixed with Dogs, Whiting and Pouting.

    An enjoyable few hours uptiding with the lads all going home with a nice "fry" for the table.

    We have room for 1 more angler on tomorrows trip which will be to the "Wall"
    Fridays trip will be at anchor again on the 6.0m tide !!

    Steve Knott is pictured with one of his fish.

    Tight lines as ever

    A shocking week so far weather wise as I'm sure it is all over the country until storm Gareth passes through.
    If predictions are correct it's looking like this coming Saturday "might" just fall in our favour. Keeping our fingers crossed for that after a long spell off work!

    The Spring angling competition starts in a shade over 4 weeks (13th April) and runs for a fortnight. Top prize is £1000.00 in cash!!
    We still have room in the competition so come and have a go at winning that lovely cash prize.

    As always, individuals are very welcome.

    Check the calendar for availability at :-
    www.shytorqueseaangling.com
    Here on CBUK.

    Next weeks tides are ideal from Tuesday for a spot of uptiding. If the weather's ok and you fancy a run drop me a line. I'll go with just a couple of anglers.

    Cheers and tight lines
    Rich.
