Penarth welcomes Fishery Protection Vessel

The Fishery Protection Vessel Cranogwen has been a welcome visitor at Penarth Quays Marina this week.
Measuring 20 metres in length, MFV Cranogwen is capable of 18 knots and is equipped with a high speed RIB for boarding fishing boats. Operating in the Bristol Channel and the Irish Sea, MFV Cranogwen is responsible for enforcing Fisheries legislation which means that her role is likely to change over the coming years!
Cranogwen is named after the bardic pseudonym adopted by the Victorian Welsh female sea captain Sarah Jane Rees (1839-1916) who was the first woman to win the Crown at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in 1865. Among her other accomplishments, she established the Women's Temperance Movement and founded a Welsh language journal for women.
