"Since the initial ground investigations of the harbour seabed carried out in the summer of 2013," writes Capt. Stuart McIntosh, Cowes Harbour Master
, "contractors Boskalis Westminster have successfully constructed a 350m long, detached, rock armoured breakwater and we have almost arrived at the point of project completion. The final handover to CHC and commencement of a 24-month maintenance period will occur in November."
You can read more about the breakwater in the lead story of our October newsletter, along with an announcement regarding the new publisher for the Cowes Port Handbook
, the launch of a new ferry service from Cowes to Portsmouth and other news from Cowes Harbour.
