"Sparkes Marina is ideally located in fantastic sailing grounds, with great facilities, and friendly helpful staff. It’s great on a summer’s day or on a crisp winter morning: whether watching the wild geese, or enjoying a lager outside the Piranha Bar as the sun sets, it’s a fine place to be. As it is just an hour and a half from our home, we try to use our boat every weekend - there’s nothing better, than on a frosty day, exploring Chichester Harbour, or in summer, a sunny cruise down the Solent, and of course the Marina is accessible at any stage of the tide.

What’s great is there’s a wide range of excellent marine businesses onsite, very useful. There’s Wi-Fi, and the Freedom Berthing discounts offer considerable savings on a range of services too."
