UK. All the latest Cowes Harbour news

Friday, 27 January 2017

 

Welcome to our first newsletter of 2017 - and I hope that the year ahead will be a good one for all.

 

 I would like to congratulate British sailor Alex Thomson who claimed second place in the Vendée Globe on 20th January; an achievement hailed by the French as “magnificent”. Alex reportedly had three objectives going into the race: first to finish; second to podium; and third to win. “I’m happy we got two of those,” he said, and has confirmed he will be back in 2020 to win!

 

 

A vacancy has arisen on our Board of Commissioners so we are recruiting to fill the position, and are keen to receive applications from across the local community to ensure that a balance is maintained in respect of the skills and interests of our Board members. If you might be interested, do please see our article below or contact the Harbour Office to find out more.

“I’m John Corby, I’ve lived in Cowes since 1982 and spent almost all that time designing and building yachts. I’m absolutely passionate about Cowes, the harbour, and the whole lifestyle here.

“The Harbour Advisory Committee is made up of representatives from many groups associated with the harbour and represents these groups to Cowes Harbour Commission. “The really key thing that we do is to facilitate the communication between Commissioners and harbour users. Harbour users include people who make a living out of the harbour and those living by the harbour, and there are hundreds of people whose livelihoods depend on this harbour."

Make a difference to Cowes! 

Become a Cowes Harbour Commissioner.

One of our Cowes Harbour Commissioners, Ben Board, has taken the decision to resign due to family and work commitments. In his resignation letter, he commented: “I think the work the Commission do is extremely important and you have a team of people on the Board that care passionately about what happens to the harbour, as do I, and I feel that it is in safe hands for the future.” CHC is seeking a new Board member to fill the vacancy and has commenced an open recruitment process for the position.

 Applications to the Board of Cowes Harbour Commissioners are encouraged from capable individuals of varied backgrounds and experience to help increase diversity on the Board. Candidates should demonstrate enthusiasm, commitment and local knowledge, and have an interest in public service.
