New marina to open on the Isle of Wight

Individuals heading off on Isle of Wight holidays may soon be adding a trip to the waterfront to their itinerary, following the completion of a new marina.

Dame Ellen MacArthur is to open the waterway - based at Cowes Corinthian Yacht Club - next month, the Isle of Wight County Press reports.

It is expected that the 38-berth site will be able to accommodate a number of events to be organised by the sailing group - which could be even more reason for those on Isle of Wight holidays to view the attraction.

Tony Bedingfield, the club's vice-commodore, said: "Our thanks go to The Crown Estate for agreeing to provide funds for the scheme ... Without this, the whole project would not have been possible."

The Isle of Wight Walking Festival, which takes place along the island's coastline and will run from May 7th to 22nd, attracted more than 20,000 people last year, the island's council recently reported.
