waiting for the tide

with the editor Giving the gift of boating They say giving is better than receiving and I can think of few better examples than this month’s feature by Richard Drabble on building a sailing tender as a present for his daughter’s wedding. A blue pram dinghy wouldn’t be everyone’s idea of the perfect wedding gift, but what a pleasure to be skilled and able to make such a thing of beauty for someone who is really going to appreciate it. Generosity is so often the key to getting new people out on the water, as illustrated by our ‘reader columnist’ Susan Carter (p20), who recalls the boat trip with her brother that changed her mind about going boating. But sharing skills, tips, secrets and experience is at the heart of PBO every issue. Now take…

mca: experienced boat owners can still carry out maintenance

The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) has confirmed that boat owners can still work on their vessels following the publication of six new Marine Guidance Notices (MGNs). The MGNs follow a review of MGN 280, which the jury in the Cheeki Rafiki trial advised it be tightened. Four men died when the Beneteau 40.7 lost its keel in 2014. Douglas Innes, whose company managed the yacht, was found guilty of failing to ensure the yacht was operated in a safe manner. Some boat owners have raised concerns that the new MGNs, which cover guidance on maintenance, modifications, damage and repairs, keel groundings and rigging inspections, could prevent them from performing repairs or servicing. Point 4.4 in the draft MGN on maintenance, modifications, damage and repairs, states: ‘Unless specifically trained, experienced and/or qualified to…

scottish watersports centre under threat

A campaign has been launched to secure the future of Scotland’s only National Watersports Centre. The national agency for sport, sportscotland is reviewing the Isle of Cumbrae site due to its increasing running costs and is considering whether to open a new national sailing academy in Largs, on the mainland. The centre offers a range of courses, including RYA cruising courses and instructor training. Its closure would mean the loss of 15 full-time and 25 part-time jobs on the island. A spokeswoman for the Save Cumbrae National Watersports Centre campaign said the community was alarmed by the move, arguing that a sailing academy at Largs would, “not fully cater for the needs of Scotland’s sportspersons. “Closure of the existing centre would mean less young people having the opportunity to participate in paddlesports, dinghy sailing…

clipper ventures calls for independent inquiry

Organisers of the Clipper Round the World Race want the Government to hold an inquiry into the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB). Clipper Ventures is questioning the integrity of the investigation and the subsequent MAIB report into the death of Simon Speirs, who died on Leg 3 of the 2017-18 edition after his tether hook failed when he went man overboard the Clipper 70, CV30. The Department of Transport has said it is confident that the findings by the MCA and MAIB were “independent and thorough”. Clipper has highlighted inaccuracies in the report including the statement that it had not carried out any of the MAIB’s recommendations relating to previous incidents. It stressed that following Mr Speirs’ death, a paid, professionally qualified ‘additional qualified person’…

tributes to yachting journalist and author peter cumberlidge

Yachting journalist and author Peter Cumberlidge has died aged 67 from cancer. He was a regular contributor to Practical Boat Owner and sister publications, Yachting Monthly, Yachting World and Motor Boat and Yachting. Born in 1951 in Leytonstone, Peter learnt to sail on the River Dart after his family moved to Dartmouth in 1960. He crewed on larger sailing boats and undertook delivery trips before jointly buying a 1936 wooden gaff cutter, Stormalong, with his father in 1972. Peter cruised extensively, sailing to North Brittany and the Channel Islands, through the French canals to the Mediterranean, through the Dutch canals to Denmark, across to north-west Spain and regularly down the Biscay coast of France. Peter always wanted to write and became a full-time travel writer and photographer in 1983, working initially for both Yachting…
