Why are we based at Lymington Yacht Haven?

Well certainly not because it is cheap. Lymington Yacht Haven is just about the most expensive in the country, but it does have a number of significant advantages especially for Mile building courses.

Unlike many Marinas it has free car parking which is patrolled at night. Others charge or you have to find a spot on a road as near to the Marina as you can.

Being close to the West end of the Solent RYA Milebuilders to France, Channel Islands and the west require only 3 miles before you are heading towards your destination. Compare that with say Port Solent where you have to lock out and go down to Portsmouth, then round the east of the Island before heading South.

The facilities are superb, LYH was voted best in UK in 2017. The New Forest National Park starts at the edge of the Car Park 100m from Wild Spirit. With a variety of paths some regulars choose to arrive an hour or 2 early, miss any traffic and go for a walk.
