Great Yarmouth where Coronia was built and Scarborough where she has served most of her life are very much alike. They are both fishing ports, sharing the same raw easterly winds, which can sweep straight from the Continent whipping up the North Sea into being one of the most treacherous stretches of water in the world. Both towns take their pleasure as seriously as their work, which inevitably have close links with the sea.

Thus it was that at the turn of the 1900?s, cruising in small boats to large steamers began.
