Is the Castle Breakwater going to be extended as well to provide shelter for cargo or passenger vessels to turn during South Easterly strong to gale force winds? I go to watch ships daily at St Peter Port and have seen some of our present ships struggle to maneuver when docking in many differing wind strengths and directions. A week ago the Commodore Goodwill could not enter the pier heads due to North Westerly 40 knot gusts and left for Portsmouth without docking. Not long after it`s return to service the Huelin Dispatch was blown into scaffolding at Number 5 berth. Luckily nobody was hurt. These are just two incidents with comparatively small vessels during the last six months, if the Castle breakwater is not redeveloped at the same time then how are much larger vessels going to cope? It`s funny that Joe Public doesn't get to hear about such incidents isn`t it? I don`t know who the people responsible for this report have consulted with to come up with such a plan but It`s time to squash this before our stupid politicians get to read it properly(if they ever do read things of this scale properly) and waste OVER £200,000,000 (which the cost will be before it starts) of MONEY WE DON`T HAVE. IF NOTHING ELSE AT LEAST READ THOSE LAST FOUR WORDS.
