East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm

Received 30 December 2019
From Simon Elwell

Representation

I am a sailor based out of Harwich harbour, frequently sailing through the area of the new windfarms. Sailing vessels are not fast (we plan passages at 6.5knots but can frequently be slower if winds are light). A detour around a windfarm of 2-3 miles can add 30 minutes to a passage - so my representation is to please: 1. Ensure that simple through passage is available for leisure craft 2. Ensure that during construction work safe passage up and down the coast is available 3. Ensure that windfarms both under construction and working are well lit 4. Ensure that guard boats communicate clearly with non-professional leisure boat sailors
