Dover Marina is keen to emphasise the fact that not only do the offer great service but they also have great facilities for leisure boating enthusiasts.
Says Chris Windsor, Dover Marina Manager “It is hoped that the “Open Fun Day” will not only attract existing boat owners, but hopefully people based in Sussex & Kent area that are interested in getting out on the water. “
The open day forms part of the Port of Dover’s commitment to the Royal Yachting Association’s (RYA) Active Marina Programme, which offers additional training, cruising and social opportunities throughout the year. The event is also held in association with the British Marine Federations ‘on the water’ campaigns.
