Eyes to the Skies
Tuesday, 02 September 2014 00:00

Eyes to the SkiesWith more entertainment, music and displays than ever before, Chatham’s Historic Dockyard is going to be full of vintage delight on 20-21 September. One of the highlights of the Salute to the ‘40s weekend will be an air display by the ‘Spirit of Kent’ Spitfire, promising to draw all eyes to the skies.

During the weekend, the 70th Anniversary of the D-Day Landings on 6 June 1944 - which can be said to have been the beginning of the road to the end of the war - will be commemorated, together with the 70th Anniversary of the launch of WWII Destroyer HMS Cavalier.  

All three of HMS Cavalier’s guns will be fired, the appearance of the diesel locomotive Overlord (which served on the D-Day beaches with the Corps of Royal Engineers) and tri-service re-enactors, gather to remember.

End of an era
Thursday, 28 August 2014 00:00

End of an era Sunsail’s Club Vounaki will be closing its doors for the last time at the end of the 2014 season.

With a host of world-class facilities, dedicated staff and activities for all ages, both ashore and out on the water, Club Vounaki has been a firm favourite amongst Sunsail customers for 20 fun-filled summers.

The decision to cease operations there comes as the company’s contract with the breach club comes to the end of its term. Sunsail will instead now concentrate its investment in its fleet, with the intention of increasing its focus on independent charter and flotilla holidays, as well as sailing schools and corporate business. New fleets, flotillas and bases are expected to be announced shortly.
