Windy Weymouth and Ensign Envy

Tom Cunliffe offers a variety of maritime and sailing advice on his awesome Vlog. If you’re interested in sailing, things maritime and the salty road to freedom, then pour yourself a glass of the finest and settle down to listen to my occasional chat. I talk about whatever falls off the top of my head.

There’s even the odd rant. I don’t follow a script, so although it might be about yachting and the sea, I’m also likely to include my other passions, such as classic cars or motorbikes. It’s best to subscribe. That’s free and worth doing as you’ll be notified when the next vlog appears. If I’m away cruising, I never know when I’ll get the opportunity to upload it. Jump aboard and enjoy.

English Harbour 29 Offshore

The English Harbour 29 Offshore combines all of the benefits of the EH27 with outstanding seagoing performance. Utilising Volvo’s sublimely smooth and efficient D3 Aquamatic, the English Harbour 29 Offshore provides speeds of up to 24 knots with astonishingly agile handling.

Benefiting from her modified semi-displacement hull form and large bathing platform, the English Harbour 29 is the ideal offshore family cruiser. Her spacious interior, practical detailing and category B certification ensure she is a truly unique boat for weekend or long distance cruising.

High Tides Low Tides

Time stops for no man and that applies to the tides too. Taking into consideration the time of the tides at high and low points should be on every boat owners mind. The BBC has a comprehensive daily feed for tide times supplied by the UK Hydrographic Office. Premier Boating would like to hear your boating stories good and bad that have been effected by the tide.

Dive cylinder and kit servicing

Bridport (West Bay) Harbour is 15 miles west of Dorchester at the western end of Chesil Beach. It was important in the 19th Century for shipbuilding and for exporting rope and nets. It is now mainly used by locals but following major improvements to the harbour entrance, fishing vessels and leisure craft are visiting once again.
