The Big Harbour Cleanup – Poole

Salterns Marina is delighted to support GoPladdle with the “Big Harbour CleanUp“.

GoPladdle was founded along the south coast UK and is led by enthusiastic volunteers with a mission to unite communities and clean up our oceans and beaches. The organisation is based on the idea of litter picking whilst kayaking.

Salterns Marina are thrilled to be lending GoPladdle a Torqeedo Electric Outboard Engine to power “Polly”.

In contrast to combustion engines, Torqeedo drives do not discharge any exhaust or oil into the water and there is no water contamination as a result of refuelling. This will assist GoPladdle in their mission to clean Poole Harbour much quicker while keeping the carbon footprint to an absolute minimum.

GoPladdle founders, Jake and Rosie, said:

“We would like to say a massive thank you to Nick Smith and the team at Salterns Marina, Golden Arrow Marine, and to Torqeedo for lending us this amazing piece of machinery! The Torqeedo Travel is an electric outboard that can also be charged via solar! You can’t get much more eco friendly than that! The guys at Torqeedo have really created something incredible! We feel so lucky to be receiving the level of support that we are and couldn’t do it as successfully without the assistance of such amazing people. Thank you!”

Through communities becoming increasingly aware of the importance of looking after our environment and groups such as GoPladdle tackling the issues of waste and preventative measures, we are heading in the right direction to protect our environment and oceans.

You can find out more about GoPladdle on their Facebook page.

Salterns Marina hosts RNLI Fishing Competition!

The RNLI Poole Fishing competition took place on Sunday 20th January 2019.

On the morning of January 20th the sun rose over Salterns Marina as fishing boats gathered for the first RNLI Poole Fundraising Open Boat Flounder Competition.

Thank you for all the support. It was uplifting to see so many boats afloat and the many generous donations of prizes was truly heart warming.

The weather out in the harbour was clear and calm. There was a slight north easterly breeze which put some colour in the competitors gills as the 43 fishers cast their lines, of which 7 took home a prize for landing a flounder.

Congratulations to Bobi Francis who won first place after landing a fish weighing in at 2lb 15oz. Bobi was presented with a trophy donated to the RNLI Poole and District Fundraising branch.

In addition to the cash prizes, the following prizes were generously donated:

  •  Lift out and pressure wash for a boat – donated by Salterns Marina
  • A fishing rod – donated by Christchurch Angling Centre
  • £30 in vouchers – donated by Poole Sea Angling Centre
  • £20 voucher – donated by Wessex Angling Centre
  • Salterns Marina and Christchurch Angling Centre also donated prizes for the raffle.

Poole and district RNLI volunteer and event organiser Sarah Birchenough said;

We were really pleased that so many fishing folk turned out as this was the first time that we had held this event, huge thanks to Salterns Marina for hosting us and all those who donated prizes both for the competition and the raffle, we really do appreciate the support and I am pleased to share that we raised £171 which will go towards saving lives at sea, thank you’.

Mission Christmas 2018 – Helping Local Children Living in Poverty

Mission Christmas –  You can help Salterns Marina and Wave 105 Radio make Christmas Day different for local children living in poverty.

It’s a heart-breaking thought, but there are thousands of children living right here in our community who are in danger of waking up to no presents on Christmas Day.
If you’re able, please buy an extra present this year and donate it to Mission Christmas.We’re looking for new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0 to 18.
You can drop them off here at Salterns Marina until Wednesday December 12th. While you’re at it why not warm up and relax with a freshly ground coffee or a comforting hot chocolate as you look out across the frosty marina.

Every gift donated stays local so you can be sure that your generosity will benefit children living in our area. Thank you for your support.
