AUTHOR SETS HIS LATEST BOOK AT NCI CAPE CORNWALL AND DONATES PROFITS TO THE STATION

3rd September 2021. Local author Richard Trahair has set his latest mystery novel “Bleak Encounter at the Cape” around the NCI station at Cape Cornwall and is donating the profits from the book sales to the National Coastwatch Institution.

The book was officially launched by Richard at the Cook Book café in St Just in front of a large audience which included representatives from NCI Cape Cornwall and the local community. Richard thanked everyone who had come to the book launch, gave some of his background and read an extract from his book. He concluded by saying “I greatly appreciate the work of the National Coastwatch Institution, and particularly the watchkeepers at NCI Cape Cornwall and this is why I have decided that all the profits from the sales of this book will go to the Cape Cornwall station”.

“Bleak Encounter at the Cape” is available from Amazon and as a Kindle download.

Currently 57 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.
