UPDATE: out of respect to the late Queen, the festivities have been cancelled but many of the classic boats have already arrived and the harbour will be open to visitors.
Following the return of our annual Classic Boat Festival last September, we’re busy planning our annual Classic Boat Festival again, welcoming visitors to discover historical vessels on the pontoon over the weekend of 10-11 September 2022. We’ll be joined by several historical vessels, with visitors getting the opportunity to climb aboard and learn more about their history and how they work.
Throughout the weekend, our friends at Jetstream Tours will be offering trips out to the wreck of SS Richard Montgomery. These will depart from the All Tide Landing, offering the chance to share with locals and visitors the fabulous views and scenery of the harbour.
Our weekly harbour market will be making a special appearance on the town quay during the weekend, with a variety of food, drink and locally-made products and services on offer.
Many of us will be at Queenborough preparing for the pageant. All visiting yachtspersons and pageant participants welcome.
The Sea Cadets’ training ship arrived at Queenborough Harbour yesterday and is open for visitors until 8pm this evening.
If you haven’t already booked, please be aware that with the Jubilee Pageant and several large group bookings, Queenborough Harbour is expecting to be VERY FULL, especially on the Friday. You are advised to check with the harbour (07456 459754) before planning on coming to Queenborough on the Jubilee weekend.
This tidy Leisure 20 was found drifting unmanned in the Thames Estuary and was brought into Queenborough by the Southend lifeboat. Using social media the harbour staff were able to trace the owner within two days.
