Anchors aweigh for Dover Marina Open Day 2017

On Sunday 14 May, the Port's award-winning Marina will host another open day offering fun activities for all the family.

The event, held in partnership with the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club (RCPYC) and international yacht brokers Clarke & Carter, will bring the sailing community and industry experts together for a day of water displays, exhibitions and local food stalls. 

Hosted on the Crosswall Quay from 10am until 4pm, the day will include free entry and parking, in Harbour House Car Park, from 7am – 7pm. 

FireFox Fishing Charters will be offering free trips around the harbour, there will be an opportunity to paddle a Bronze Age Boat replica around the Wellington Dock and Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club (RCPYC) and Cinque Ports Sailing will be providing yacht sailing tasters for those interested in taking sailing courses.  

The event will run in tandem with the RNLI Lifeboat “Station Open Day” with its shop and rescue vessel open to visitors. The RNLI will also be offering free lifejacket safety checks. 

Barbara Buczek, Port of Dover Director of Corporate Development said; “This year’s Marina Open Day really does have something for everyone. Dover has a wide range of nautical training and activities on offer such as courses for professional mariners at the Viking Maritime Skills Academy, and maritime skills and sailing courses for all levels at the Dover Sea Sports Centre. This event is great opportunity to experience this showcase of outstanding maritime heritage and opportunities in Dover’s prestigious Marina.”
