About the Active Marina Programme

MDL Marinas & Solent Boat Training are proud to be a lead partners in an initiative designed by the RYA to help boaters have a safer, more active and more social experience on the water. The Active Marina programme was launched last summer at MDL’s UK marinas including Ocean Village in Southampton and offers berth holders, local boat owners or soon to be boat owners a series of training workshops, cruising trips and social events.

We can help you enjoy your boating more

Boat ownership is all about freedom and having fun. The RYA's Active Marina Programme is designed to help you get more out of life with your boat. The programme encourages and supports increased berth holder activity by partnering with marinas, RYA recognised training centres, berth holder groups and yacht clubs to establish or enhance a programme of training, cruising and social opportunities.

Solent Boat Training 

The Ocean Village RYA recognised training centre provides the best training in the world for boaters. Through your local RYA training centre, the programme provides you with practical and shorebased workshops at your marina, aimed at increasing competence and confidence out on the water.

Cruise in Company

Cruising in company is a relaxed and enjoyable way to extend your cruising horizons with the added bonus of the camaraderie of a small flotilla. As well as benefitting from the experience and knowledge of others, it also gives you the opportunity to socialise with other boat owners and berth holders.

Meet the Neighbours 

Marinas are fantastic places to meet like-minded families and crew. The Active Marina Programme helps to set up and develop berth holder groups for social events and mutual support and advice.
