27 Seconds of Silence
Helwick Lightship

Craig felt a kinship with the crews of both the Helwick Light-ship and the Cape Horners, being moved by the notion of men living in isolation out at sea or away from their families and loved ones. He himself has spent the last few years travelling and working away from his own family.

His work on board the Helwick Light-ship utilised factual information about the mechanics of the ship but re-presented it in a way that made the text poetical, talking of more human elements, the moments of silence and reflection that occur when people are away from home.
