holders and visitors enjoyed a morning in the sunshine at the Boat Jumble Plus
on Saturday 1st April at Sovereign Harbour.
range of stalls were set up selling different items from secondhand chandlery
and boat parts to galley items and fishing tackle. The quality of goods on sale
was high with a fairly new 5hp outboard engine snapped up within minutes of the
jumble opening at 10am. Sales continued right through until 3pm and all those selling were
pleased with the outcome whilst buyers were equally pleased with their
purchases at Eastbourne.
to attend, the event was organised by Sovereign Harbour Berth Holders Association (SHBHA) and
was an excellent opportunity for boat owners to have a clear out and make some
extra money. The RNLI Sea Safety team were also present on the day carrying out
free lifejacket checks, with RNLI volunteers reporting a record number of
jackets checked with no major faults.
Marinas’ Self Store facility at Sovereign Harbour Marina was also open to visitors and a Premier staff
member was on hand to provide tours and discuss storage requirements with
individuals and current storage offers.
The new venue by the
boatyard entrance turned out to be very popular.
