Nickys Chandlery & Canvasworks Open Day

Date: Add this to my calendar

A date for the diary – join the team at Nickys Chandlery for an Open Day on Saturday 11th May from 10.00 to 15.00.  

Along with the opportunity to navigate its fully-stocked chandlery, browse the wide selection of essentials for both motor and sailing boats, including a wall of different ropes, paint, charts, lifejackets, fenders, pumps and general fittings to name just a few stock items, plus some new lines in for 2019. 

Jeckells, sailmakers, who have been making sails since 1832, will be in attendance; advising on the different sail options, materials and design and will be operating a Q&A clinic for customers who either have or are thinking of new sails or wish to discuss why their sails don’t give them the performance they expect. Kingfisher Ropes  will be demonstrating multi plait splicing and Nickys Sail Loft will be holding sail care sessions throughout the day, giving helpful tips on maintaining your sails and keeping covers in great condition.

Other activities include a Lewmar servicing section, International Paint Clinic, Sea Safety Displays and a life-raft demonstration by Seago - which is always very popular

Hot and cold beverages will be available on the day from the cafe. Plus, why not make a day of it and pick up some beautiful jewellery and delicious Mediterranean produce to take home (both salty and sweet!) at the pop-up Italian market and craft stall. .
