Mike Golding said: “When we were training Round the World race crews, we stopped at all of the marinas in the Solent area and always judged the venue by the quality of the facilities – and these at the Beaulieu River are outstanding.”

Mary Montagu-Scott said: “This is part of a programme of investments in the Beaulieu River, with a new approach for modern times. We have been delighted to open the new facilities for moorings holders and visitors.”
