Ships Blog 13th January 2023

Friday 13th, unlucky for some – perhaps!. Welcome to the Ships Blog. Trenching work for the new water main is well underway. Please be considerate when parking at the marina and liaise with the Control Tower as well as the Yard crew if you have any questions. We have a new lady starting in the Control Tower called Ellie Doe. Starts Monday 16th January¬† and will be taking over a lot of Miriam’s role as she winds down to two days a week in 2023.

Weather wise its been a very changeable week with a number of depressions coming in from the Atlantic, wind and rain being the main theme. Next week its all change to a colder scenario from Sunday through to Thursday at least. There after it becomes milder until the end of the month.

A reminder that the Shipwreck is closed until Feb 13th. There is access for berth holders to use the ablutions but the toilets are closed to the general public.

Tides this weekend are Saturday HW 16:27pm 3.5M and Sunday 15th HW 17:21 3.4M so heading towards the bottom of Neaps. This weekends lockmasters are Andy Howard (days) and Colin Byford night watch. Have a great weekend and wrap up warm.
