Sailors bound for Portsmouth and its new harbour front, Gunwharf Quays, need to pre-book

Yachtsmen visiting the new waterfront complex at Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth Harbour are being asked to give the manager at least 24 hours notice.

There are only a limited amount of berths available and while no yachtsmen are actively discouraged from the ‘leisure shopping complex’ it is the more illustrious boats which Gunwharf wants to have tethered to its pontoons so as to attract spending spectators.

All vessels requiring a short stay of up to four hours (6 pounds sterling) should contact the berths manager on VHF Ch. 80 or telephone him 02392836732.
