Cornwall Visual Arts Forum at The Centre, Newlyn
Running from 9am to 3.30pm, the latest Cornwall Visual Arts Forum is being hosted by The Centre up 'Paul Hill', for those of you who know where that is!.....Seems that one household has access to their own solar power supplies these days!Mark makes his way back to the Triton to land his catch....one of three boats landing, the other two being crabbers of course....down the new quay a stray box advertises the port to passers by.....on Newlyn Green our new friend watches over PZ199, the Algrie as she makes her way to the gaps....and minutes later the guys are busy servicing the running gear......the new whaleback nears completion on the crabber to be.
Ten years go this week....
Crew from the visiting ex-sidewinder Hatherleigh get the lowdown on the new crab boat being built from the hull of the Sarah Shaun...On the news today, pollack sales are up 44% according the latest figures thanks to TV chefs promoting the fish - all good news for the guys who catch line caught pollack!down the new quay, the George Johannes gets her derrick hanging blocks greased....it's a Thursday market, and a quiet one at that, the western end of the market with not a box of fish in sight..... Nelwyn's fisherman's memorial looks out over the bay in the early hours, its ten years ago this week that local beam trawler, Margaretha Maria went down south of the Lizard, with the loss of all hands. Morlaix registered trawler Cap Frehel makes her way into Newlyn for repairs.
Up on the slip in the early hours after landing this morning, PZ999 the Jannie En Klaas gets a scrub on the bottom....on the auction floor Mr Murley gets to talk fish as one of the Jannie En Klaas' cod watches from below.....this was another one of those days with more empty boxes than full ones on the market floor - Wednesday is always a bad day for export fish because of the transport logistics....it might be well into November, but with the sea temperature around 13 degrees C the Battery Rock swimmers are out in force!
