Saturday – competition day
Saturday is our fun competition day, with fancy dress and boat handling competitions for everyone.
Day sail on Amelie Rose
Sail on the beautiful pilot cutter Amelie Rose for a full day, including lunch and post-sail drinks onboard.
See the Jurassic Coast from the water - maybe even a dolphin or two!
- £95 per person
- Booking link to follow
Star in a reasonably priced boat (!)
Explorer and good chap Paul Rose will set the target time for our fun boat handling competition, using our 6.5m RIB Watershoot.
You can then have a go and see if you can beat his time. There will be a fully qualified instructor onboard at all times.

- 1030am-1230pm have a go

Recycled birdman of Portland
Fly like a bird (or a stone!) from tall ship Moonfleet into the marina. Bring your homemade wings and flying suits - they must be made from recycled, reclaimed and repurposed materials. Explorer Paul Rose will commentate as the fearless launch themselves into the marina.
- Noon in the marquee - registration and safety briefing
- 1pm-2.15pm watch them soar (then sink)
Full safety cover will be provided, and participants enter at their own risk.
Marina staff walk the plank
Vote with your pounds and put your money on which member of the marina staff you'd like to see walk the plank from Moonfleet's poop deck. Whoever receives the most donations will get very wet! All proceeds will go to Surfers Against Sewage.
2.30pm walk the plank

No booking needed for these events - turn-up and learn something new, for free
