What’s your favourite moment from your Yacht Havens career? I have so many 'favourite' memories after 20 years, but I will confess to a story from my first few weeks on the job, back in 1996...
A marina colleague asked for the tide times me over the VHF (back in those days we just had a piece of paper printed from the one dial-up internet connection we had to share with the phone line, and I was just started as a summer intern). Well… I didn’t know how to read the tide tables and rather than looking foolish to everyone on VHF Ch 80, I pretended I couldn’t find them and threw them in the bin! It’s taken 20 years for me to confess!
