I was sailing on the Solent, off Portsmouth and Gosport last week, on board a 39ft yacht, with friends. As we made our way from Cowes on the Isle of Wight to Gosport, I couldn’t believe the amount of ship traffic – rush hour on a Sunday afternoon! Decommissioned warships, car ferries, racing yachts – you name it.

Chief Bottle Washer at Blather

Writer, photographer, environmental campaigner and “known troublemaker” Dave Walsh is the founder of Blather.net, described both as “possibly the most arrogant and depraved website to be found either side of the majestic Shannon River”, and “the nicest website circulating in Ireland”. Half Irishman, half-bicycle. He lives in southern Irish city of Barcelona.
