So I am now officially in the National media scrum. After emailing the YM news editor about a landowner in Poole harbour trying to stop people landing on the foreshore of Long Island which isn't even owned by them. It is owned by the Crown Estate. The article really isn't very clear and certainly doesn't make the point that it *is* legal to land on the foreshore. But they got my age right !
I guess that's journalism for you.
The article is on page 11 of August's Yachting Monthly. I have reproduced a snapshot here so as to preserve my fame !
Mark is working up towards giving up work and sailing away.
Am I running away ? Too right I am ! From traffic jams on the M4, the Inland Revenue, Health and Safety legislation, Big Brother series 27/28/29..., all politicians and constant marketing trying to make you buy "stuff" you don't want, don't need and won't use and meaningless jobs you do for large corporations who make "stuff" to earn money to pay for "stuff" you don't need, don't want and won't use...
You get the idea.
I have only got to Ireland, France and the Channel Islands so far in my Prout 33 Catamaran I purchased at the end of 2007. But the seeds of change have been sown and this is the story so far...
