UK: Gosport Marina Development Includes Dredging
In November, Premier announced that Clipper Round the World Yacht Race would be taking advantage of new berthing at Gosport Marina.
Gosport Marina was granted permission to build 27 new 22-32 metre berths at the southern end of the marina. The construction of the new berths includes dredging around the southern entrance, piling and the installation of new finger pontoons at A and D walkways.
“We are pleased to report that ‘C’ pontoon is now in place which marks the final stage of Clipper berthing. What’s more, as part of the reconfiguration, a new breakwater has been installed to provide greater protection for the marina from south-easterly winds.”
“We are also pleased to say that the new gate between ‘D’ and ‘E’ pontoon is scheduled to be installed next week,” they stated.
