Shipping notes No. 170 (May).

Bideford Quay.

No shipping since last issue.

The only news since last issue, a short report in the Gazette this week that a Plymouth businessman, Connor Johnson, (a director of Patriot Yachts Int) has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £400,000 by the end of May to seed the revitalisation of the yard. He has an investor company in the wings willing to put in £4million if he can raise 10 percent of the capital needed. Let’s hope he succeeds.
