snakes & ladders

We were sailing beautifully, Gipsy Moth IV running sweetly and at speed, the bow wave rolling out across the calm sea. Then the tide turned. The evening remained tranquil, our progress through the water unabated, but on the horizon landmarks that had been slipping astern began to reappear, and Hurst lighthouse, for which we were aiming, grew ever more distant (p60). The frustration of slamming into a foul tide is matched only by the euphoria of hurtling along with it at speeds quite unimaginable in non-tidal waters. Sailing is like a game of snakes and ladders. The key difference, however, is that we as sailors, are not victims of fate. Not, at least, if we understand our environment and how to take advantage of it. Over many years of cruising, Ken Endean…

report flags future sar aircrew shortage

If you have a news story to share, contact News Editor Katy Stickland Email Katy.Stickland@timeinc.com Tel 01252 555 166 The UK’s privatised Search and Rescue (SAR) helicopter service could face a shortage of qualified aircrew, according to a new report. The British defence company QinetiQ has carried out a review into the privatisation of the SAR helicopter service, seen as controversial by some, which since 2015 has been run by Bristow Helicopters in a 10-year deal worth £1.6 billion. It found that although the transition, which saw the number of SAR UK airbases cut from 12 to 10, and the removal of ageing RAF Sea King helicopters from the service, has been ‘successful’, there were ‘a small number of issues which, if not addressed, may cause risks to SAR capability’. These include the future of…

yacht emissions under scrutiny

Emissions from domestic boats in the UK, including yachts, are to be looked at by the government. Boat owners, port and marina operators and boat yards and storage companies are being asked to respond to the Department for Transport’s Call for Evidence looking at air pollutant emissions from all domestic vessels used around the coast and inland waterways. All the information gathered will be used to help the government understand more clearly the extent of emissions from vessels that do not currently fall within the scope of environmental regulations, and establish if it can do more to address the issue. A summary of responses will be published within three months of the close of the Call for Evidence, which will end on 11 January 2020.

clipper organisers want new inquiry

Clipper Ventures, which runs the Clipper Race, is calling on the government to hold an inquiry into the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) and Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB). It follows the publication of the 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 overboard the Clipper 70, CV30. The Department of Transport told YM it was confident that the MCA and MAIB’s findings were ‘independent and thorough.’ Clipper Ventures wants the inquiry after it highlighted some inaccuracies in the MAIB report, including the statement that Clipper hadn’t implemented any of the MAIB’s recommendations relating to previous incidents. Clipper said following Mr Speirs’ death, a paid, professionally qualified ‘Additional Qualified Person’ was introduced to aid each…
