Zoom Mtg. No. 6 – Power from Natural Fluid Flow
23 May, 2020 @ 19:30 - 20:30
For this meeting AYRS member Tom Potts would like to tell us about an idea for generating power from natural fluid flows which could be the wind or water currents or possibly even wave action. He would like us to discuss this and add our own thoughts to see what we come up with. I am hoping that he might also tell us a bit about Cornish gig rowing.
At our last Zoom meeting I sugested a change to the day of the week for these meetings since in the UK at least, limited outdoor recreation is now permitted, so on Saturday evenings some of us may be returning from a day out boating. However, after a short discussion the consensus at our last meeting was to stay with Saturday meetings for the time being, so our next meeting will be next Saturday evening.
Coming up soon we plan to have a Zoom meeting about anti-fouling treatments and a meeting at which Bernard Rhodes from New Zealand will tell us about the design and construction of the 21 foot trimaran which he sailed across the Atlantic and Pacific oceans back in the ’70s.
Our announcements are now being sent out to AYRS members through a Mailman list (https://list.org/). The way that we first had this set up meant that replies from individual members were being circulated to the whole membership which resulted in members receiving unwanted messages, so apologies for that. I hope this has now been corrected – I am sure it will very quickly become obvious if it has not.
