RYA “Active Marina Experience” back for second year

RYA ‘Active Marina Experience Returns’ to the All Wales Boat Show

FREE on-the-water and shorebased workshops in partnership with Celtic Cruising & Snowdonia Sailing School and Hill Dickinson Commercial Law Firm.  From berthing and boat handling to shorebased advice and learning, workshops will run Friday- Sunday and will provide you with some real hands-on experience.

You can view what happened at the 2013’s Active Marina Experience @ PSP SBS here.
