Shepards Wharf – helping you enjoy your boating more

Berth holders at Shepards Wharf Marina, as well as all other CHC mooring licence holders, are being invited to attend a series of workshops this season to help make the best use and get the most value out of their boats.

Jock Rafferty, Marina Manager at Shepards Wharf explained: “We are delighted to have recently joined the popular RYA Active Marina Programme. Working with the RYA will enable us to offer a programme of practical activities to help our berth holders and visitors learn new skills, have fun, and importantly stay safe on the water.

“The initiative aims to develop skills and confidence in boat handling, to help people get the most out of boat ownership,” continued Jock. “We have hand-picked an initial programme of interesting events and workshops, which will provide a great chance to meet new friends from our marina and river moorings.”

The first four events in the Shepards Wharf RYA Active Marina Programme are as follows:

5th April: RNLI Sea Safety talk
12th April: VHF/DSC Radio Course
26th April: First Aid
3rd May: VHF Refresher Course

The above events will all be held in the Amabi restaurant at Shepards Wharf Marina. For more information about these activities and the RYA Active Marina Programme, please call Marina Manager Jock Rafferty on: 01983 297821 or email jock.chc@cowes.co.uk.
