Marina News – September 2018

Offers – You will find details of our ‘Winter Lay-up Offer’ on our home page, spaces are going fast so it is advisable to book as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.

General Maintenance – We are continuing to develop and clean up areas of the yard, therefore you will see some boat movements over the coming weeks and some welcomed improvements in areas.

For Sale – If you haven’t already noticed we have a ‘For Sale’ page on which different nautical items will be advertised as well as boats.  If you would like any more information about an item that that has caught your eye please contact us and we will put you in touch with the owner.

Sandwich Marina v SSMBC – Unfortunately as of yet we still haven’t managed to compete in the ‘Darts Challenge’ hence I don’t have any results to share this time!

Sandwich Arts Week – Our neighbourly ‘Sandwich Sailing and Motor Boat Club’ is one of the venues on the Sandwich Arts Week Trail. The venue will be open on the Saturday 22nd of September and  we are proud to inform you that Andrew Baldwin will be exhibiting some of his fantastic and extremely creative mechanical sculptures and Jason Pay a selection of his stunning local photographs.  The venue will be open during 1pm and 11pm and free teas and coffees will be on offer. The bar onboard the Club House Barge will be open.

Stour NewsAs some of you may already know the Sandwich River Bus the ‘Southern Queen’ sadly became submerged close to her pontoon recently (see image below).

Sandwich Quay

The good news is that due to the help of many volunteers and our large pump a huge and successful effort was made to refloat her.  I can now report that she is safely on dry land here at Sandwich Marina awaiting reports of her condition in order to decide her fate.  We are all hoping that she will be back in business as quickly as possible.


Arriving at Sandwich Marina

End of Season – After a long hot Summer Autumn is upon us and we are now looking ahead and preparing for the coming cooler months.  We are looking forward to seeing the familiar faces of customers who return each year for routine maintenance and winter lay-up.  For those of you who perhaps are considering coming here for the first time I would like you to know that we do offer winterisation programmes tailored to suit your needs and that you are welcome to visit us here at Sandwich Marina.  If you would like to pop in for a coffee and a chat please just give us a call on 01304 614813 or email us through our contacts page.


Enjoy the last of the fair weather and sunshine while it’s still here
