A week or so ago, the Secretary General of the IMO, Mr. Koji Sekimizu, was in Harwich as a guest of Trinity House Deputy Master, Captain Ian McNaught. During his visit to Harwich, Mr. Sekimizu noticed the logs in the yard of the Mayflower Project and was kind enough to mention the Project on his blog at http://imosgblog.tumblr.com.
I’m assuming Mr Sekimizu has not yet had the pleasure of visiting the Harwich Mayflower Project. But as a gentleman that enthusiastically supports activities that preserve traditional technologies and skills employed in shipbuilding and as busy a man as he must be, I would hope that Mr. Sekimizu would be able to visit in the future and hopefully see for himself what’s being achieved at the Project, building the Mayflower as well as the regeneration of shipbuilding skills in Harwich.
