Events 2018

September 28th – MacMillan Coffee Morning – 11am

Come and join our coffee morning at 11am on Friday 28th September onboard the Spirit of Sheppey located on the pontoon at the harbour to raise money for the MacMillan Cancer Support.

September 29th & 30th – 3rd Classic Yacht & Motor Boat Festival

The festival is open to any boat, large or small, designed or built before 1970 – wood, steel, aluminium, fibreglass, ferro cement, sail, power, steam or other, the bigger the variety of boats the better the show. If in doubt as to whether your boat qualifies please email a photo and a short description.

Without classic boats, we will not have a festival, so we are delighted to offer free berthing for up to 5 nights for qualifying vessels that register with us before 21st September 2018.

You must register by email and have received a confirmation email to attend.

To register your Classic Boat please email

Visitors (by foot)

Entry is FREE, the harbour will be open to the public to view the boats and meet the skippers. In addition, we plan to run passenger trips around the harbour and visit classic boats on their moorings.  Last year almost 1000 people attended and the atmosphere was terrific.

Opening Times

Friday 28th           Most of the Classic Boats arrive in harbour

Sat 29th                 Festival open 10am to 5pm

Sun 30th                Festival open 10am to 2pm

We hope you can join us in making this 3rd festival even better than last year and a regular feature in the boating calendar.

Best Wishes
