Whilst sailing is a permitted form of exercise Government advice is not to visit the marina during this Tier 4 “Stay at Home” period if at all possible. If you do decide to visit us please consider the associated risks very carefully. Please note, your security key is essential to open the main gates.

We are working on site to look after your boat and provide safety and security. Thank you for following all of the guidelines currently in place to keep the marina Covid free – if you do visit the site please continue to keep your distance and wear a mask when talking to staff.

Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your continued diligence when on site and to thank all of our staff for their hard work and commitment during this difficult time. Let us hope that with the roll out of the vaccine we will soon be able to get back on to the water safely and have an enjoyable sailing season in 2021.
