7th May 2014 - Press Release

Dover Marina Open Day



Back by popular demand, Dover Marina Open Day returns on Saturday 17th May to provide both budding mariners and those already enjoying the fantastic community benefits of sailing at the Port's award-winning marina with the chance to try something new.

In partnership with the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club (RCPYC) and international yacht brokers Clarke & Carter, the free event will bring together the local sailing community and industry experts for a day of family fun filled with water displays, exhibitions, local food stalls, children’s entertainment and a second-hand boat sale if you really get the bug!

Taking place on the Crosswall Quay from 9.00am until 5:00pm, free parking will also be available, so there is no reason not to come along and explore what Dover’s waterfront has to offer.

Ben Greenwood, Business Development Manager – Marine, said: “This is a great day out that gives seasoned sailors fresh opportunities and introduces newcomers to the charms of sailing and the sea.  Ultimately, it is about building a thriving sailing community in Dover that brings people together, creates a buzz and puts Dover further on the map as a vibrant sailing location.”

As well as trying something new, why not experience something old by exploring Dover’s very own Bronze Age Boat replica before being brought right back to the 21st century with a bang by entering a draw to win an iPad if you come and complete our treasure hunt.

The open day forms part of the Port of Dover's participation in the Royal Yachting Association's (RYA) Active Marina Programme, which offers additional training, cruising and social opportunities throughout the year.  Being run in association with the RCPYC as well as the British Marine Federation’s 'On the Water' campaign, practical workshops will take place during the day.

Bernard Sealy, Commodore, Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club, said: “The return of this event and the growing partnership with the Port of Dover demonstrates the great work going on to promote Dover as a destination – somewhere to savour a rich maritime heritage and somewhere to experience and enjoy the delights of the sea.”
