Back by popular demand, Simon Jinks will be delivering another presentation to berth holders, this time entitled "Getting the most from your boat".
After his sell-out talk in 2016 entitled "Crossing The Channel", Simon returns to take you through the fascinating art of river and tidal navigation to give you the confidence to explore our beautiful estuaries and discover sheltered anchorages when it's too windy to go out to sea.
- Saturday 24th June @ Mount Batten Watersports Centre
- FREE ENTRY but prior booking is essential
- Contact the Marina Office to book by calling 01752 404231 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
