June 2023 – The Yachting Season Is Now In Full Swing
June 26th, 2023
The yachting season is now in full swing, with all five Berthon international offices basking in summer sunshine and the whole team busy with regattas and yacht sales. We are looking forward to the rest of the summer season and planning for the autumn boat shows is in the works. A purchase now will have you on the water for the rest of the season.
Berthon in Lymington welcomed over 150 delegates on Saturday 10th June, hosting the WCC Bluewater Open Day on a glorious sunny day. Would be bluewater sailors and WCC rally goers came to enjoy panel discussions, yard tours and safety demos, as well as meet and chat with experienced, past rally participants who had been there and done that. Finishing off the day with sundowners at the B-Bar was the perfect end to a successful, informative and enjoyable day for all. Thank you to the World Cruising Club and all the industry partners who helped make the day so special, as well as to all the wonderful delegates.
