Brigid-Mary Posted July 7, 2010 Share Posted July 7, 2010 Hello all, been very tied up of late with working in conjunction with a couple of off shore wind farm projects and a delivery trip up to Montrose so I have been out of touch a bit. I just cannot believe the amount of money being thrown at these wind farms, all the treehuggers who try to tell us that offshore windfarms are the most cost effective and non polluting source of energy need to go out and buy a new pair of sandles and smoke a bit more dope. The amount of fossil fuels being consumed to construct and service these things is massive. Bringing me on to the use of fossil fuels. There is the opportunity for a couple of passengers to accompany Ocean , a veteran of 2 Round Britain Powerboat Races, on a trip from Lowestoft to either Ramsgit or Dover, in August. She will be on her way to participate in the Cowes -Torquay-Cowes event. I thought it might be a good opportunity for a couple of fellow boaters to get some sea miles in on some unfamiliar waters. There will be the opportunity for some RYA training in radar,AIS, and Raymarine plotters as well as helming the boat. The cost will be around Â£220.00 each one way. A good opportunity.
