On-water berthing, boat handling and man overboard tuition available free of charge on first come basis


Visitors to September’s PSP Southampton Boat Show will have the opportunity to hone their boat-handling skills in on-water workshops arranged by the RYA.

The Active Marina Experience will be run every day of the show and will see people taken out on a Sunsail yacht, Jeanneau Prestige 32 motor boat or Suzuki-powered RIB, in sessions running from 11am-5pm.

The workshops available include berthing, boat handling and what to do in a man overboard situation.

To get one of the limited spaces on board, book at the Try-a-Boat stand (A140) when you arrive at the show. Sessions cannot be booked in advance.

There are also shore-based workshops available, ranging from engine basics to radar operation.

These are an hour long and can be booked in advance by emailing bookings@which-marina.com or by calling +44 (0)1784 223 816.
