The festive season is almost upon us but due to some unseasonably good weather, we are still seeing a steady flow of boats enjoying a day out on the water.
Our boatyard at Kingston Wharf is busy as owners are taking advantage of the good weather to work on their boats carrying out winter maintenance tasks, and the team at Shepards Marina are very busy managing annual mooring and event bookings for next year.
I am pleased to report that we have just appointed Cedar Marine to carry out a Carbon Management audit of CHC. The team at Cedar Marine will assess our baseline emissions across our buildings, infrastructure, and supply chain, and then develop an action plan that will enable us to deliver improvements over a five year period. Once a plan has been established, CHC will then work with key stakeholders in Cowes so they too can help contribute to a cleaner maritime future.
We have also started work on our next 5-year strategic plan that will take us through to 2027. As always, the Board of Commissioners remain enthusiastic about the development of Cowes Harbour and the River Medina and supporting the many events that take place in Cowes throughout the year. Our plans for the next five years therefore focus on continuing to maintain a ‘thriving port that is fit for the future’, the full details of which will be available from early in the new year when we launch the 5-year Strategic Plan.
Finally, from everyone at Cowes Harbour Commission, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all our best wishes for the festive season and a prosperous New Year.Gary Hall
