Our fishermen are responsible for an awful lot of plastic in our seas - discarded nets and fishing line as well as polystyrene that gets blown into the water.
They have a supply of polystyrene boxes in which they put their catch. The lids invariably blow into the sea. But they are light in weight and stack easily. I wish there was an alternative.
We have been sailing together for 18 years and have owned Stiletto for 16 of them. We have exhausted the Solent and the UK South Coast and all the other usual passages: West Country, France, Channel Islands etc. that are available from our home port of Gosport. [...]We embarked on our "Slow Boat to the Med" big adventure, having sailed out of Gosport in April 2017, with our final destination being the island of Ikaria, in the Eastern Aegean - where Andreas has his family roots, before going on to explore the hundreds of other stunning Greek island locations - we could be away a while!
