Gosport Marine Festival, 11th May 2019, Gosport

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to sail a dingy, row a boat or glide along the water on a kayak, now’s your chance - and, best of all, for free!

Head to Haslar Marina from 10am-5pm on Saturday 11 May to join in the fun, and try an exciting array of on and offshore activities.

All you need to do is pre-book your activities and then turn up on the day, preferably wearing something you don't mind getting wet. Safety equipment will be provided free of charge.

The festival is mainly based in Dean and Reddyhoff's Haslar Marina, but extends to the Cockle Pond and the green of Trinity Church.

While people are on the water, their families can enjoy food stands, day-long entertainment and exhibitions ashore.

All the water-based activities are very popular, so we advise booking as soon as possible. We give priority to Gosport residents, but it's first come, first served. Even though the activities run all day, places are limited, so whether it's stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking that you fancy, get online and book your slot.

If you want to exhibit or trade at the festival please email for further information.
