Latitude Kinsale Creates Navigation Award

Approaches to Falmouth smal

Internationally acclaimed artist, Bobby Nash of Latitude Kinsale™ has been commissioned to create this year’s Navigation Award at the Pendennis Cup.

Fittingly Bobby’s 3D chart piece will be the ‘Approaches to Falmouth’ from the Admiralty Archive in Taunton.  Chart 154 was originally surveyed by Commadore W. V Rive from 1925 to 1930 on the ship Beaufort and showcases exquisite features such as Penryn River, Mawes Harbour, Pendennis Point with detail of the iconic Castle and St Anthony Head. 

“It’s been an exciting and intricate piece to work on, and as always a labour of love”, said Nash, who is himself an avid sailor. “Because of the unique design and technique employed by Latitude Kinsale™, the light cast across the 3 D chart, which encompasses the beautiful Helford river, its numerous creeks, Falmouth bay as far as Manacle Point, highlights this stunning coastline, casting shadows that enhance this relief piece.  It is a fitting and wonderful prize for the regatta, and we were delighted to work on this special commission for the Pendennis Cup”, Nash added.
 The custom piece for the Pendennis Cup will be on display in The Great Atlantic Gallery in Falmouth.  Other current commissions at Latitude Kinsale™ include 3D charts for the ports of the Volvo Ocean Race, which will also be presented during this year’s race. 
Latitude Kinsale™, which is based in Kinsale, Co. Cork, is renowned worldwide for its its unique and sought after 3D charts, framed Surround Lighting charts, Relief Nautical tables and commissions, which always provide a unique way to appreciate the beauty of the sea and our marine landscape.
