Royal Clarence Marina hosts heritage sailing club race

20th August 2008 Print
Royal Clarence Marina, the regeneration project by Berkeley Homes and boasting the deepest marina on the South Coast, is now firmly established in the eyes of the boating fraternity as a key centre for sailing and boating events.

This Bank Holiday weekend, Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th August, it will provide the base for the Solent Old Gaffers' Annual Race and Rally.

The race, now in its 50th year, promises to be a very special event. As many as 50 of the traditional gaff-rigged sailing boats, ranging from 19 to 57 feet, will be racing from Cowes to Portsmouth, where the race will reach its finale at Gilkicker Point. Afterwards the boats will parade into Portsmouth Harbour, making a stunning spectacle for those gathered to watch. The Royal Clarence Marina is providing the mooring-up point for these lovely craft. A marquee ashore will be the centre for post-race refreshments and reflections.

Royal Clarence Marina offers the heritage sailors a stunning backdrop of restored Grade ll listed naval architecture. This weekend presents the perfect opportunity for prospective purchasers to visit the development and be the first to view the two brand new show apartments which will be unveiled on Saturday. They will be open open for visitors from 10am to 5pm on this Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. With only three contemporary penthouses in Flagstaff House remaining, this really is the last opportunity to buy a superior Berkeley home with breathtaking views across Portsmouth Harbour.

Discover the extraordinary space and singular design of the last of the beautifully converted heritage apartments in The Bakery building - now all fully released for viewing. There really is something for everyone!

Prices at Royal Clarence Marina start from £180,000 for a one-bedroom mews house, £240,000 for a two-bedroom apartment in The Bakery and £315,000 for a penthouse apartment in Flagstaff House. For more information, see For information on all developments by Berkeley Homes, visit
