Yachtsmen brought their concerns about a huge offshore wind farm to its developers.
Eneco, which wants to create the £2 billion-plus Navitus Bay wind park to the west of the Island, met with 30 representatives from yacht clubs on the Island and along the south coast at the Royal Yacht Squadron in Cowes.
A presentation was followed by a question and answer session, with representatives asking about the potential impact of the park on their recreational activities.
