Dominic Thwaites , a long term resident at Burnham Yacht Harbour Marina Ltd , set’s off for his solo circumnavigation of Britain on the 18th April aboard his Beneteau First 25.7 yacht. He’s working his way round anti clockwise and plans to return home to us by mid September. He has prepared a comprehensive web site, www.domsroundbritainsail.uk, where we would encourage you to visit. It describes his preparation and plans and contains regular blogs, photos and videos of progress. You can also follow him on twitter @domsbritsail. Dominic is raising money for the Honeypot Children’s Charity, www.honeypot.org.uk, that supports vulnerable children who are often young carers in their own home. He would be delighted to receive donations to spur him on and help these children. We wish him the very best of luck .
Welcome to Burnham Yacht Harbour
Situated on the north bank of the River Crouch. We provide all the facilities you would expect to find from a top class premier marina and as we are in the town itself, it is just a short walk to explore the many restaurants, pubs and shops of the pretty sailing town of Burnham on Crouch.
The Marina and Town are set in the beautiful unspoilt Dengie Marshes, a haven for many species of wildfowl. From here it is a short distance to the open waters of the Thames Estuary and the peaceful cruising grounds of the Rivers Alde, Deben, Orwell, Stour, Thames and Medway. If, you are feeling adventurous France, Belgium and Holland are within an easy days sail away.
The Town has a very active racing fraternity and has a number of well known Yacht Clubs (RBYC & RCYC) that organise such activities.
