We’re just starting out with this boating thing and after buying a boat on ebay I needed to find somewhere to sail from. I don’t really know what I’m doing (but am learning fast) so was really pleased to find somewhere on the south coast that is easy going, supportive and affordable. Everyone there really knows what they’re doing and is always happy to help when you need it. There’s no glitzy chandler but there are proper trades there who can actually fix stuff when you need them to at very sensible prices. There’s just as much if not more support for us as we learn what we’re doing at Thornham than we would get at a sailing club from people who are experts in what they do. On top of that there are lovely warm loos / showers, hot food, a bar and absolutely stunning scenery… I don’t really know why you’d keep your boat anywhere else!
