Welcome Back to Boating - Updated 13th May 2020
I would like to sincerely thank you all for adhering to government advice since the start of the lockdown, being patient and only visiting your boats for essential safety and security purposes.
We're really pleased to be able to inform you that our dry stack service and boat lifting operations have now resumed.
Following further clarification from the government and port authorities, you will be able to once again enjoy your boats on the wonderful Western Solent and beyond. All forms of water sports practices on open waterways, including sailing and the use of privately owned motorized craft are now allowed.
Of course we understand your enthusiasm for being back on the water again, but please give every consideration to our Haven Team, your fellow berth holders and yourselves.
We all appreciate how important it is for us all to stop the spread of Covid-19 and following a few simple suggestions will improve your safety and the safety of others and help everyone enjoy boating responsibly.

Take a look at our new safe boating guidelines to familiarise yourself before heading down to the marina.
- Please only enter the office if absolutely necessary and respect the social distancing measures when in contact with any member of staff.
- Please do not gather on/around the pontoon; simply use them for embarking and disembarking. If you need to do any cleaning or 'tinkering' on your boat, please let us know and we'll put it on a rack for you.
Just being back out on the water is going to be a great relief to many of us and a perfect tonic for this period of lockdown, but we must all play within the rules and have thoughts for the frontline workers who are still battling this virus.
Please continue to stay alert and follow all the advice from the government and from our Haven Team.
We look forward to welcoming you back.
