This month we talk about the importance of keeping a good look out on the water, introduce you to CHC's newest member of the team, publicise the winter operating times for the fuel berth and water taxi service, feature a Tale of Two Helens, and we profile CHC's Commercial Services team and Rob Kitcher from Island Wide Marine. 

I cannot believe how quickly the past 8 months has gone since I joined the CHC team. So much has happened in that time both inside and outside of the organisation but I have enjoyed every minute of it.

So how did my first ‘season’ in Cowes go? The spilt of responsibilities between CEO and Harbour Master has worked very well and enabled both me and Ed Walker (Harbour Master) to work to our strengths. As a consequence, and with the support of a great team, Shepards Marina and our moorings have been very busy, the Cowes Harbour Services team has picked up a variety of new contracts and a number of improvements have been made at Kingston Boatyard.

I am therefore pleased that such good progress has been made in a year when we are still recovering from the Covid pandemic. Judging from the amount of positive feedback we have received; this has not gone unnoticed by our customers either.

As I write, our team at Kingston are gearing up for a busy winter as boat owners have already started to book their boats in for the maintenance tasks they have planned, and the team at Shepards Marina are busy taking bookings for winter berths. Full details on the services we are able to offer can be found later in this newsletter but the key message from me is to book now so you don’t miss the boat (pun intended).
