Our Marina was opened in April 1988, providing a much needed facility for club members, berth holders and the public. The costs of developing the marina, car parks and the extension to the launching ramps were all met by the berth holders, with the Club obtaining the use of the work berths and the inside of the floating breakwater at no cost. The Marina continues to produce a valuable income for the Yacht Club.

Contact: Brian Berriman – 534 3465 or 0274 937 947.
