Lymington Yacht Haven in October is normally the time of year when winter bookings are made and boats are lifted ashore for winter storage!
But this October, the Yacht Haven in the Western Solent attempted to change that cycle with an autumn cruise to Newtown Creek for their annual berth holders.
Over 40 berth holders braved the 15-20knot forecast and congregated on the visitor moorings in Newtown Creek after cruising from Lymington river. With the Yacht Havens RIB on hand (appropriately named, “Thank Havens”), boaters were shuttled ashore and met with Sloe Royale cocktails on the quayside!
After a pleasant walk along the creek, Yacht Havens staff and berth holders settled down with new friends for a hearty lunch of pies at the excellent New Inn pub at Shalfleet.
Back on the water, boaters were shuttled back to their boats before heading back to the Yacht Haven. Head to the Lymington Yacht Haven website for details about 2018 cruises!
