Meet the Crew

East Cowes Marina has a team of four, with extra seasonal and part-time staff at weekends and in the summer.

The Team

Kevin Richardson is the health and safety guru for Dean & Reddyhoff, and Sue Hobday has been at East Cowes even longer than Mike and knows everything about everything. Gerry and all the weekend gang help out in the busy season, and very thankful we are to them all too.

Our Managers

Mike Townshend, Marina Manager

Mike is known as 'two sheds' for reasons lost in the mists of time, and he's been on-site since before we laid the first bricks. When he's not running the ship, he goes yachting with his family and frightens other Tuesday night racers every time he hoists a spinnaker.

Jess Olden, Assistant Manager

Jess perfected the art of pressure washing before leaving the marina to try being a book-keeper (a skill she was honing in her spare time). Very sensibly/madly (depending upon your point of view) we were able to entice her back. Jess owns and races a Contessa 26.
