On Thursday 7th May, we had really low tides with no swell so Robin, Eric and Kevin went 'down to the seaside' for an adventure: A good inspection of work done in spring 2019 by AGT

Quote from Robin Hamilton: "Other than chainage 240 where we saw further undermining last autumn, all the repairs we did are looking good. Still, a few places have undermining particularly at chainage 90 to 100 where there's over 2m undermining .We did not manage this area last year. Also a few other sheared blocks."

Our Harbourmaster has been organising the assessment of the leading lights and it was agreed that the green and red leading lights and the triangular marker should be replaced. When arriving, for boats with deeper draughts, it's wise to follow the green guidance between the Scart and Castlefoot Rocks on a bearing of 198deg.. When the red light becomes visible through the harbour mouth on a bearing of 132deg. it's time to turn in, tie up, and turn in (for a good night's sleep).

After a very quiet two months, the harbour is again seeing some landings. The prawn trawlers are busily offloading crates of prawns, and the fuel bowser is topping up the diesel tank.

We're all hoping that the lobsters and crabs 'catch up' soon.
