Moorings to be protected and expanded

The threat hanging over the future of yacht moorings at a strategic sailing location have been removed thanks to the foundation of a trust with Sir Robin Knox-Johnston as its patron.

Ever since Swale Borough Council washed its hands of the running and the maintenance of the moorings at Queenborough on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, doubts over their future were expressed.

Since 1st April the running of the harbour services have been transferred to the Queenborough Harbour Trust, a not-for-profit community organisation which has been set up to preserve and enhance the Harbour for the benefit the many and varied users of the Swale-based yachting station.

Members of the Queenborough Harbour Trust also plan to increase the number and types of moorings available.  

Queenborough commands a strategic position on the South East coast
providing as it does a jumping off point for London, Ramsgate, the Essex
harbours as well as the Continent. It is also the entree port to the
River Medway and the Medway Towns as well as a fascinating cruising area
in its own right.
