Thornham Marina Supports BREAKTHROUGH BREAST CANCER! Here's Why...

Each year we send out Christmas cards to all our wonderful boat owners, but this year we are doing something different.

Thornham Marina is donating to www.justgiving.com/luluboys for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Here is the reason why...

Louise Boys is a determined, inspirational and beautiful young lady, a wife, mother of 3 and a very dear friend of Thornham Marina. Things could have been a lot different for Louise. Louise is taking part in the Brooks HellRunner in January 2014.

This is Louise's story:

"The charity I have chosen to get muddy for is BREAKTHROUGH BREAST CANCER and this is why...

Last year I was diagnosed with DCIS, which is an early form of breast cancer. I had to have a mastectomy and fortunately didn't need to receive any further treatment. This year my Mum was also diagnosed with breast cancer and had to have a mastectomy. She is ok but will need on-going treatment for the next five years.

I was sent an email by a friend asking if anyone wanted to do Brooks HellRunner, she had recently signed up. The Brooks HellRunner takes place at Longmoor Military Training Camp, nr Borden, and is (to quote the website) "trail running at its toughest and most enjoyable. It is 10 -12 miles of challenging off-road running... tough, twisting trails... including the famed Hills of Hell and the Bog of Doom!"

I was tempted but knew I wouldn't go through with it without some sort of incentive. So I entered and I am doing it for charity. I figured if I took everyone's money then I would have to do it, no chickening out!!

Did you know that around 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK? That's one person every 10 minutes. With your help I am trying to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, so that people like myself, my Mum and the thousands of other people touched by breast cancer can hopefully one day say 'We Beat Cancer'.

Thank you for your support." 

If you would like to support Louise in her tough challenge, you can visit her just giving page, www.justgiving.com/luluboys to donate. Thank you.

Robs says:

“Hello Jeanette and Crew,

Firstly many thanks for getting Drowsy out of the weather and into the basin at short notice - much appreciated by both of us!

Secondly, I was delighted to hear I'd won the draw for free storage this winter.

You and the team provide a first rate service and I always know that Drowsy will get a thorough look over after a gale to make sure everything is as it should be. Irrespective of the draw, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend other boat owners to come to Thornham if they want the stress taken out of over-wintering. It’s also excellent value (especially this year) and a great place to be!

With kind regards

Rob Scovell – Yacht Drowsy”

Winter Lift Out Check List


With the British winters becoming colder and harsher, more precautions are needed to ensure your pride and joy stays safe during the winter months. Navigators & General recently published an article stating that January is the worst month of the year for boat insurance claims, 40% higher than the average month. Simon Tonks, Navigators & General Business Manager said: “The combination of freezing tempertatures, driving rain, and high winds makes this a particularly vulnerable time of the year for boats. Over just a few months, ropes can wear, fenders burst, bilge pump batteries run down, sails become unfurled, cockpit drains block with leaves and lines work loose. While boat insurance is there for if the worst happens, most policies will not cover damage caused to vessels which have not properly been maintained.” 

With so much to think about, we’ve put together this handy check list to help you and your boat this winter. 

1. Prior to the boats arrival, ensure that the marina/yard team are aware of your type of vessel and keel configuration. If you have a picture of her out of the water it can be a great help. 

2. If you are planning to have any specialist/messy work done during the winter, ensure the staff know well in advance so they can position you in a suitable area. 

3. Prepare fenders and warps on both sides whilst safe in the water. Lift out season is a busy time and things can change constantly. 
Cross Bracing Wooden Shores
Provides Extra Security

4. Do not tie covers or tarpaulins to wooden shores or cross bracing! 

5. Remove all expensive equipment, outboard and tender and store in a safe place. 

6. One of the most important things you can remove are the SAILS! Ideally, they should be removed prior to lift out, however, this is not always possible. Each year many sails unfurl in the winter gales causing lots of damage to boats.

7. Remove any covers, dodgers or spray hoods that could become damaged over the winter period. You might want to think about sending them to Covercare for a good clean! 

8. Remove the log impeller and replace with a blanking plug. 

9. Check all standing rigging and screws for sign of wear or damage. If you want an expert eye, Barry the Rigger can do this for you. 

10. Check your seacocks. Look at them from the outside and check the conditon of the through-hull skin fittings. Also check the inside that they all operate correctly and easily. A handy tip: make sure each through-hull fitting has a wooden bung of the correct size tied to it so if something does go wrong you can plug the hole quickly. 

11. Check your propellers and anodes whilst she is ashore. If your anode is more than 50% gone, replace it. If they go during the season you could end up with an expensive bill next year! 

12. Drain down your water tanks – we all know what happens to water when it freezes! 

13. Get your engine winterized. Cutler Marine can do this for you. It is worth it! 

SeaSafe are your local
life jacket service provider.
14. Service The Lifejackets – An important maintanence task that many overlook! This can be done for you in the office. We send them off to SeaSafe who will check them and notify you of any defects. 

15. When leaving the boat, ensure that all batteries and gas bottles have been switched off. 

16. It is always useful to leave a spare set of keys with the office, not least of all incase you forget to bring yours when you come down. 






I hope you found this useful! If you have any useful tips or advice to help others prepare for winter, please send them to Courtney via info@thornhammarina.com

Port Hand Marker Missing On Thorney Channel Approach

If you have watched the news over the weekend you may be aware that a 'mini tornado' hit the south coast Sunday morning. Luckily there is no damage to report from the Marina. For those that haven't caught up with the news, click here to see an article from the BBC with a small video. 

Unfortunately the port hand pole marking the end of Thorney Island Sailing Club's  concrete jetty which is submerged 3 hours either side of high water and extends almost half way across the channel has completely disappeared. The Chichester Harbour Conservancy has been informed together with Defence Infrastructure Organisation, who are responsible for maintaining it.

At high water, the underwater obstruction is difficult to locate for those of us who are familiar with the area, let alone skippers from elsewhere. As far as I am aware a replacement has not yet appeared.

Trafalgar Wharf Hosts World Record Attempt: Daredevil’s Solent Sail in UK’s Biggest Pumpkin

You’ll never guess what Trafalgar Wharf are up to today! They’re attempting to set a new World Record by crossing from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight in a hollowed out giant pumpkin!

Yep, that’s right…a PUMPKIN!

They were contacted by contemporary artist Dmitri Galitzine, who asked them for their help, and how could they resist. To be fair, the pumpkin will be fitted with a small outboard motor which will enable Dmitri to travel at about 1 or 2 knots, but the crossing point is over one of the busiest shipping channels in the world. This is going to be the first ever attempt in history to cross the Solent in a giant vegetable!

The pumpkin was prepared and tested at our sister site Trafalgar Wharf, on Sunday and Monday, with the crossing to take place on today. We have our fingers crossed for good weather and a smooth ride for Dmitri.

And as if sailing across the Solent in a bright orange vegetable isn’t madcap enough, they will also be trying for a Guinness World Record attempt with a 100 metre paddle dash in the pumpkin (no motor this time!!) in the wet dock here. They’ll be racing against the clock to paddle 100 meters in under three minutes.

They’ll be doing this on Wednesday 23rd at 1pm so if you’re around and fancy coming to watch then please do go down. They’ll be serving up pumpkin soup to keep you warm. To find directions to Trafalgar, please click here

If you fancy going down to watch, then please drop Jo a quick email – jo@trafalgarwharf.com

Thornham Marina Takes on 2 Apprentices For a Day To Raise Money for #HelpACapitalChild !

As part of Help A Capital Child Week, the Thornham Team will be joined by Gillies & Emily, Capital FM South Coast breakfast presenters on Tue 22 October.

Gillies & Emily will be assisting Cliff & Josh in the day to day activities of the yard.

Help a Capital Child is committed to improving the lives of disadvantaged children throughout the UK. The money raised will be used to fund specialist Teenage Cancer Trust units in Hospitals across the country, which are specifically designed to make life a bit better for teenagers. They can share their experience with people of a similar age, and the environment is designed to allow them to still be a teenager despite everything they are going through.

A Busy Winter Season..

Winter 2013/14 has been our busiest (and possibly coldest!) yet. 

All that is left for most, is to think about the jobs you have to do prior to re-launch. We thought we'd put together a few ideas as a check list to ensure you are ready for summer.

If you have yet to decide a launch date, call the office 01243 375 335 to discuss suitable days. Easter is on 31 March this year and that week is very busy so I recommend you book as soon as possible if you wish to go that week. 

Antifoul - Allow yourself plenty of time to antifoul your boat if you are doing this yourself.  To ensure you get the best out of your antifoul, it should be stored at room temperature the night before and then applied to your boat in a temperature of above 5 degrees on the day.  

If we are antifouling for you then you do not need to worry as when you book your launch date, we will then allocate a day for your boat to be antifouled. We will make sure that the patches where the shores or cradle pads have been are antifouled and this is done whilst you are in the slings ready to be put back into the water. For those of you who are antifouling yourself, if you leave your paint and a brush, the guys will do the patches for you before your launch. Please be aware that they will only have time to do the patches and will not have time to drop keels for these to be antifouled. If you need your keel antifouled, this will need to be booked prior to launch and you will be charged at an hourly labour rate for this. 

The only other thing I would ask, is that you make sure you dispose of your empty tins, trays, bags and brushes in the appropriate bins.  Please do not leave these under or next to your boat as they are a trip hazard and make the yard look very untidy.

Your engine – there have been instances in the past where owners have left it until the last minute to turn their engines on, only to find they do not start.  We always allow sufficient time in the pool for owners to run up their engines, and if you have had a lot of work done on your engine it is advised that you are launched the day before you wish to leave so you can carry out any checks and make sure there are no leaks – especially if your boat is going onto a swinging mooring.

Sails – When sails are put back on, it is important that they are secured properly especially whilst you are still ashore.  If they are not secured properly and the wind picks up, the sails could unravel and potentially cause the boat to fall over.  If you need to hoist your sails whilst you are ashore, please make sure that there is no wind and your boat is pointing in the right direction to the wind – again if this is not done properly serious damage could be caused to your and other peoples boats and injury to yourself. 

Re-stocking – this can be done whilst she is still ashore or depending on your launch to the pool, there will be some time for you to do this whilst in the pool.  

Leaving the pool – you will be assisted by Cliff and John when you leave the pool.  If you decide not to leave due to high winds – this is not a problem but you should let the boys know as soon as possible so you can be moved to allow the other boats to leave. 

One thing you don't have to worry about is where to leave your car as we provide a free taxi journey (within a 20 mile radius) to get you back your car. 

If you have anything else that you would recommend to other boat owners, please email us info@thornhammarina.com so we can add this to our list! 

We hope you have all enjoyed your time at Thornham and look forward to seeing you all next season!
