Join fellow Berth Holders and marina visitors on Saturday 21st July for a 'cruise in company' - in conjunction with the RYA's 'Push the Boat Out' event which aims to get as many boat owners on the water as possible to showcase sailing to the nation - and show support for our 2012 Olympic and Paralympic sailors.
Southsea Marina is excited to be getting into the spirit of the event with our very own 'push the boat out' cruise in company to the Nab Tower and back, followed by an evening's food and entertainment at the marina.
We've selected 'Caribbean' as the theme for our 'Push the Boat Out' cruise in company - and will be awarding a prize to the best dressed boat! The cruise in company will start at 11am, returning to the marina at around 5pm for an evening of food and entertainment.
There will also be a raffle with a host of fantastic prizes on offer. Tickets are now available from the Marina Reception and The Marina Bar and Cafe. The draw will take place on the evening of 21st July. Raffle tickets are £2.00 per ticket and all proceeds will go to The Rainbow Centre for Conductive Education.
