This is fantastic, Richard! It's super fast and very shiny :-)

Only comment from me is that first landing page top section looks a bit odd
with the faded ship in the background. Having our logo there and larger
would be better, perhaps.

Thanks for putting this together!

> in a new tab.
> Content such as blogs can be edited in a JSON document that can then be
> pushed to the underlying database (Firestore — the whole site ultimately
> has a Google backend): the site will then load content dynamically (i.e.
> it's not a static site).
> Other customisations to the style and (probably) a replacement of the
> Google Maps integration with OpenLayers of Leaflet are to come.
