Southerly Open Day

Southerly Open Day

6th November, 2012

In bright sunshine, over 120 owners arrived at the waterside premises for the Annual Southerly Owners Open Day on 3rd November.

The Southerly factory was open for viewing, with technical teams and sales staff on hand to give advice and to discuss specific details. Boats at various stages of construction were accessible for owners to step onboard and have a close look at the build quality, including behind the scenes, engineering systems. Displays from twenty five key Southerly suppliers were informative and provided interesting discussions.

There was the chance for Owners to catch up with the latest development including the New Southerly 535 in its first stage of build, due to be launched in next summer.

With coffee and refreshments, the day was also an excellent opportunity for Southerly owners to meet fellow owners and discuss sailing plans as well as meet members of the Southerly Owners Association.

A hot two course lunch was served with wine and a jazz quartet played background music to accompany the social chat.

The Open Day is part of the Southerly Owners events programme which includes an annual dinner as well as the annual Southerly Regatta which be in St Peter Port, Guernsey from 26th to 31st May 2013.
