Flat bottomed hulls are also considered to not be stable in rough water. A flat bottom hull can be used for sailing in calm water. There is also a displacement hull that is used in larger boats to power through the rough water. These are comparatively more stable and better for the rough waters.

Elections are coming – don’t lose your chance to vote

“Don’t lose your opportunity to vote in this year’s local elections,” people in Exeter are being reminded. People have until 19 April to make sure they are registered to vote. It takes just five minutes to apply online but if people are not on the electoral register they won’t be able to vote. That’s the message from Exeter City Council, who are organising the elections throughout the city. This year elections will be held in Exeter on Thursday 6 May. These will be for: Exeter City Council (14 seats) Devon County Council (9 seats) Police & Crime Commissioner
Once on the electoral register, people have a range of options for casting their ballot – in person at a polling station, by post or by appointing someone they trust to vote in their place (a proxy vote). The deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on 20 April. John Street, Exeter’s Electoral Registration and Returning Officer, said: “Don’t lose your opportunity to vote in this year’s local elections .Those who are not on the electoral register will not be able to vote,” he added. “But if you’re not on the register, there’s still time to ensure you are and it’s a really easy process to register – it takes no more than five minutes. You can do this by visiting www.gov.uk/registertovote “ Exeter City Council will be ensuring that polling stations across the city are safe places to vote, with extra measures taken against the spread of Covid 19. “However we understand that some people – maybe more than usual –  will want to vote by post, so I would urge them to make sure this has been arranged in advance. People have until 20 April to ensure they have registered for a postal vote,” he added.    Details of who will be standing in the elections will be available from early April and can be found on the City Council website at https://exeter.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/elections-and-voting/2021-city-elections/ The Exeter Daily …
