End Of A Busy Launch Season...

As we wave good bye to friends old and new I have been reflecting on this year’s winter experience. It has been a busy season. John has settled in to the yard and enjoyed his first Winter, despite some freezing temperatures and windy conditions, the team have always entered in to any task with a smile and willing attitude no matter how busy or long their days have been and I know how much you have appreciated this by your lovely emails and comments I have received. Thank you for keeping the team’s spirits high!

To all our New Boat Owner’s that joined I hope you enjoyed you stay and we look forward to seeing you next winter any feedback about your winter stay would be most welcome, and to all our returning Boat Owners who arrived eager to relay their tales from summer’s season thank you for choosing us year on year we look forward to seeing you next winter also. 

Our new luxurious Scrubbing Station opened (much to our Boat Owner’s delight)! I think most of you know by now that we are embarking on our biggest project yet - the replacement of our pontoon’s (whoooopeee!, I hear our berth holders saying). The land and the water will be a hive of activity from the 23rd of April and I apologise now for any disruption this may cause but I think we all agree that this project will be the icing on the cake - and there will be lots of cake and champers when the project is complete! 

Although we are nearing the end of our incredibly busy launch season, the hard work does not end there. Summer is our cleansing period where Cliff, John & Gary will spend their summer days preparing the yard for your arrival in October. We also have a new office being built for our on-site tenant Multihull World. Last but not least we shall prepare ourselves for our infamous annual BBQ! Dates to be confirmed and invitations to be sent out shortly! 

We love looking after you and your boat during your stay with us, we do get a little sad when you leave but we know we will be seeing you again soon so it leaves me and my team to wish you a very safe sailing season! 

"There’s no thrill in easy sailing when the skies are clear and blue, there’s no joy in merely doing this which any one can do. But there is some satisfaction that is mighty sweet to take, when you reach a destination that you never thought you’d make." - Unknown
