Open Invitation to the Queenborough Harbour Trust CIC Open Day Wednesday 9 October 2019 from 1500hrs – 1900hrs, The Guildhall, High Street, Queenborough.
Queenborough Harbour Trust CIC took over the running of the harbour services in Queenborough from Swale Borough Council in 2012. We would like to invite you to an exhibition of the changes that have been made in the harbour during that time. Displays and presentations will include the renovation of the All Tide Landing, the piling of the walkway and the installation of sixty additional moorings including the finger pontoons made possible by the Coastal Community Fund as well as footage of the most recent Classic Boat Festival.
The Open Day will be on a drop-in basis so please come along at your convenience between 1500hrs and 1900hrs. QHT Directors and members of staff will be on hand to answer any queries you may have and will be actively seeking suggestions as to how the harbour might be further developed. Teas and coffee will be available.
On Sunday 4 August, the annual Blessing of the Waters service took place at Crundells Wharf, Queenborough.
The 4th Classic Yacht & Motor Boat 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 2 August 2019. If you have any info on how to make this classic boat event even better than the last 3 we would be grateful with any suggestions. You must register by email and have received a confirmation email to attend. To register your Classic Boat please email email@example.com. For 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 30th Most of the Classic Boats arrive in harbour
- Sat 31st Festival open 10am to 5pm
- Sun 1st Festival open 10am to 2pm
