Whitehaven Marina is seeking stallholders and general traders, marine and otherwise to participate in their annual ‘Nautical Fun Day and Boat Jumble’. The Event, to be held at the Marina on Saturday 11th July 2015.
Simone Morgan, Marina Manager, commented “This will be our third Fun day and Boat Jumble and it is growing each year. This year we wanted to get the word out there early as a few stallholders said they were sorry that they were unable to attend last year. This year we are combining the Jumble with a BBQ for our berth holders on the Saturday evening so we are hoping for a good turnout. It’s a great fun day.”
Whitehaven is calling on all marine traders with boating bits to sell, as well as other stall holders, to book their slot as soon as possible. Traders will be offere d a 5m x 5m space on the Bulwark Quay to set up their gazebos and stalls at a cost of £30. You Boat chandlery, one of the largest independent chandlers in the UK, will be present with a wide range of new and second hand equipment; idea for bargain hunters!
The event itself is free to visitors with free parking and free overnight berths for visiting boats. In the past the event has attracted families; boat enthusiasts; boat owners looking for specific parts for their boat; people with boating bits to buy or sell; even people who want to buy things to create a nautical theme at home; as well as people who just like the chance “to mooch about” and learn new things in a lovely coastal environment.
