For navigating the Estuary.

I started ECS in 2011 for two reasons. First to prove that there is a place for a purely East Coast boating magazine and second as therapy during a lot of unpleasant medical treatment. The first was soon proven, the second is ongoing.

My friends Garth Cooper, Dick Holness and Roger Gaspar rallied round to support my efforts, but they have their own lives to lead. Many others freely contributed their time and effort, and I am deeply grateful to everyone. The time has come, however, to call it a day. I do not have the energy to do it all myself and as there has never been any income from the project there is no incentive for contributors.

So I’m away on the tide, wishing you all fair winds. Thanks, it’s been a great voyage.
