As I write, the temperature has dropped, the clocks have gone back, and winter is fast approaching, but this doesn’t mean the workload has reduced.

Whilst the harbour is quiet, this is a great time for us to carry out maintenance work in and around the harbour. The pontoons at Trinity Landing and Town Quay have already been overhauled and the Cowes Harbour Services team are currently carrying out inspections and repairs to the Folly Pontoons. We have also placed orders for new pontoons in a number of areas along the river as part of our ongoing replacement programme.

As an organisation, we are exploring what we can do to have a more positive impact on the environment and sustainability. We were therefore pleased to support TEDxCowes, an event held at the Island Sailing Club which was a combination of talks and online presentations to spur people to take more action on Ocean Sustainability. As Cowes is known as the ‘The Yachting Capital of the World’ the organisers felt it was the ideal location to inspire people, leaders, CEOs, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and companies, to find their own way to multiply exponentially their impact on Ocean Sustainability. Speakers at the event gave inspirational talks including examples of how they have successfully managed to have a positive impact on the environment in which they work or live.

Our impact on the environment and how we improve sustainability is a key goal for CHC in our next 5-year strategic plan. We are therefore involved in a number of projects, two of which you can read about later in this newsletter.
