Southsea Lifestyle – Free Magazine for Southsea, Old Portsmouth, Eastney & Gunwharf Quays

As someone who gets seasick from sitting on a lilo I’m not sure I could live on a boat.

Neil Williams had no such concerns when he set about renovating a dilapidated French fishing boat – which he now enjoys living upon, see our cover story on p6.

Staying with the sea, David Jones of Triton Scuba in Highland Road, has built an impressive reputation as an underwater photographer and film maker and has worked on numerous TV programmes and publications. He has also filmed much of the footage of a new adventure style documentary, which charts the alarming amount of plastic that is present in the world’s oceans, something that is fairly evident just from walking along our local beaches. Tipped to be the next Inconvenient Truth, A Plastic Ocean is due to be released later this year, see p.44.

Back on terra firma, we have a touching story about a war veteran p.10 and the career of a local boxing champion, Joel Macintrye on p.48. So, gloves off, get to your favourite corner and enjoy reading everything that’s great about our city!
