Berth holders from all three of MDL’s Hamble marinas are invited once again to the annual summer party, taking place at Port Hamble Marina on Friday 3 August from 7pm.
In association with Banana Wharf Restaurant, the party – held right on the water front, with a stunning backdrop of the River Hamble - will welcome berth holders and their guests from Hamble Point Marina, Port Hamble Marina and Mercury Yacht Harbour. Entertainment for the ticket-only event will be provided by The Watch Snather’s. In addition, the team at Banana Wharf will be serving up a delicious BBQ buffet for all guests. Mount Gay Rum are generously supplying a welcome drink.
400 tickets are available for the evening event, with proceeds being donated to the RNLI.
Colin Jefferies, Marina Manager at Port Hamble, said: “The annual summer party is always a great event for our Hamble berth holders and guests, it’s the perfect opportunity for everyone to get together, enjoy some fantastic food and drink and of course the entertainment! We’re all really looking forward to this year’s event.
“We have decided to make it a ticket-only event to make sure that we can accommodate everyone – and at the same time raising money for the RNLI. We are confident that the 400 tickets available will be snapped up very quickly!”
Tickets will be on sale shortly from the marina offices, priced at £1 per ticket for berth holders and £5 per ticket for guests, children under 14 are free (£1 per ticket sold is donated to RNLI).

Leaving their berths on this historic day, the ship's passengers and crew will enjoy a champagne deck party as the flutterfetti flies; the marching band plays and the ships sail past in a procession from Southampton Water out into the Solent, accompanied by a display by the famous RAF Red Arrows aerobatic team. Out in the open water the ships will meet again, saluting one another before they sail onwards to their various exciting destinations.
