January 2024 - Newsletter Extra

I am pleased to let you know that I have recently been able to add 2 extra talks to our events calendar.

Thursday 18 January 1930 hrs.   Peter Young has offered to talk and open a discussion about: Global warming - is it real? What is its impact on shipping and what is the maritime industry doing to reduce it? Peter will cover:

  • A brief overview of the growth and impact of green house gas emissions and the contribution for the maritime industry
  • The steps being taken by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and its decarbonisation pathway.
  • What are the banks and the EU doing to support it.
  • An overview of the alternative fuels (including sails) and barriers to adoption what is green and what isn't, and what can StMSC contribute to the effort?

Thursday 8 February 2000 hrs Local pilot cutter owner Debbie Purser will talk about Why I love Pilot Cutters' and show some of her wonderful photographs.  Debbie says: I am not a maritime historian, or a conservator of an original pilot cutter, but I have:

  • Skippered and maintained 2 replica pilot cutters 38ft Eve of St Mawes and 44ft Tallulah
  • Seen many replicas built, and helped original pilot cutters earn income as charter boats through Classic Sailing Ltd
  • With my partner Adam and the St Mawes Sailing Club we created the annual Cornish Pilot Cutter Review 2008 - 2024

If you have ever wondered what it is like to sail and own a heavy displacement pilot cutter instead of a yacht, I have loads of slides of the surviving fleet of original pilot cutters that sail today and the equally lovely traditionally built replicas to give you a flavour of the pros and cons of these incredible vessels. Or just come and enjoy the photos and locations.
