Peter Matheson and his border collie Elsa are sailing around the UK fundraising for research into Childhood Cancer. From Wick he will circumnavigate the UK including the Scilly Isles, Orkney & Shetland before travelling back to Wick Harbour in a challenge which could take at least six months. They spent a few days in Dunbar Harbour. Peter was inspired to take up the challenge after his sister died from cancer last year and said he wanted to do something more than just hand over a donation. He is sailing around Britain's coast in a 51yr old 22' "Westerly" yacht, named Wait and Hope, for Petal Childhood Cancer Research. Photo shows Peter & Elsa inside the Wait and Hope with all the comforts required on their 6 month challenge

Greenpeace’s ship the Beluga II is on a 2 month scientific voyage around Scotland’s coastlines, investigating the impact of ocean plastic pollution on some of the UK’s most beautiful landscapes .The first stop on the tour was on and around the Bass Rock, with water sampling for micro plastics in the area and documentation of plastic pollution in nests. As the world’s largest northern gannet colony, the Bass Rock is of international significance and the ideal starting location for this vital research and environmental campaign by Greenpeace. The crew and scientists from Greenpeace’s Research Laboratories, based at Exeter University, will be  surveying remote beaches for pollution and investigating seabird nests for plastic during hatching season. The expedition will take in sites of stunning beauty and biodiversity, including the Bass Rock, Gunna Sound, Mull, Rùm, Eigg, Skye, and the Shiant Isles in the Outer Hebrides.
