After studying our business plan and ambitions for Queenborough Harbour Sir Robin has agreed to be our patron.

He used to sail “Suhaili,” the yacht he first circumnavigated the world non-stop, from St Katherine’s in the 80s to spend the odd night at Queenborough. He has fond memories of such visits.He believes that the River Thames and Medway have had little or no investment from the authorities for leisure sailors and that improvements to harbours and berthing arrangements must be encouraged
