“The Active Marina Experience has proved to be extremely popular at the show and has so far been fully booked every day since the show opened. We’ve been delighted with the response we have received from everyone who have taken part so far” commented RYA Yachting Development Officer Guy Malpas.
“The workshops are tailor made to build the knowledge and boost the confidence of boaters of all abilities and we know that those who have taken part so far have benefited hugely from the sessions”.
Paul Stubbington who took part in one of the on the water sessions said: “It was the best practical boat experience I’ve ever had at the boat show”.
Whilst Karen Howell took part in a shorebased workshop commenting: “we enjoyed an excellent presentation on berthing and manoeuvring”.
