"Last Friday, we had the pleasure of hosting an awards ceremony at the fascinating Sir Max Aitken Museum with the participants and winners of the Cowes Harbour Landmark Design Competition," writes Capt. Stuart McIntosh
. "Do see our article on the prize giving below. Going forward, Cowes Harbour Commission (CHC) will be consulting with stakeholders and looking into the feasibility of potentially placing a sculpture on the Cowes Breakwater at some point in the future, to act as a ‘welcome’ landmark at the entrance to the harbour.
"Meanwhile, recruitment for two new Commissioners is proceeding well with an extremely good response to our advertisement from high calibre applicants. The difficult task of producing a shortlist of five for interview has been completed and interviews will take place later this month. The interview panel will consist of CHC’s Chairman David Riley, along with independent interviewers Richard Ballantyne, Chief Executive of the British Ports Association and Ian Bayliss, Managing Director of Seacat Services, offshore energy support vessel operators, based on the Isle of Wight."
