"The people have spoken, and they overwhelmingly voted for Weymouth as marina of the year in this year’s British Yachting Awards. We all know that Dorset is God’s own country and that Weymouth has been a favourite stopover for sailors for decades. Yet perhaps it was the addition of world class marina facilities - not to mention a warm Dorset welcome for visiting yachts that swung it this year.” - Sam Jefferson, Editor of Sailing Today
“Anyone who has visited Weymouth Marina knows that Dean & Reddyhoff run it in friendly and orderly style. In my own sailing, it has been the perfect family destination by summer and a totally protected haven in the winter. Clearly enough of our readers have shared a laugh with marina manager Alistair Clarke and his team to vote Weymouth their favourite marina in a strong shortlist.” - Rob Peake, Editor of Yachts & Yachting
Congratulations from us all here at JD Yachts, a well deserved award!
