In a letter to The Irish Times last week, the principal of Ireland's largest sailing school hails the introduction of the new 'master plan' for Dun Laoghaire Harbour.
Alistair Rumball, director of the Irish National Sailing School (INSS), argues that the harbour's current financial model "cannot bring us forward".
He highlights the seasonal nature of the harbour's core businesses, which include a ferry service, four private yacht clubs, the Commissioners of Irish Lights and the public marina and boat yard.
"Due to seasonality these operations cannot financially support the harbour all year," he writes. "We need the same numbers of the public to be using harbour facilities at mid- summer as mid-winter."
