Premier Marinas in conjunction with safety equipment specialists, Seago Yachting will be holding a Flares Disposal Day at Brighton Marina on 4 June.
Hosted by Nickys Chandlery from 10am – 3pm it is a chance for boat owners to bring along out-of-date flares, have them checked and disposed of safely.
The first three flares will be free of charge for Premier berth holders – additional flares charged at £2. Exclusive to Premier customers, the chandlery will pay £1 towards each flare disposal fee when berth holders buy a new flare from the chandlery; eligible for the saving on production of their boat name and key fob. Visitors will be charged £2 per flare disposal. The chandlery will also be promoting fantastic on the day offers on items such as lifesaving equipment, international paint brands and Kingfisher ropes.
Premier Brighton Marina Manager, Mike Hatch said: “This event is a good reminder for boat owners to check expiry dates on safety equipment regularly and replace them. We are delighted to have teamed up with Seago Yachting to offer this service – they are the expert professionals when it comes to safety, working collaboratively with Nickys Chandlery, who are an approved Seago Lifejacket Service Centre and stocks its full range of quality lifesaving products. It’s a fantastic partnership all round.”
There will also be the opportunity to have your lifejacket checked and meet the local RNLI Water Safety team, as well as speak to Brighton Boating (Lagoon Watersports) about any training requirements. Plus, Premier Marinas’ In Our Element rowing team, will be at the event ahead of their Atlantic rowing challenge. Showcasing their Ocean Rowing boat, as well as doing their own safety research as they begin buying the essential kit, they need to help keep them safe as they cross the Atlantic in December 2022.
Berth holders and visitors can park right outside the chandlery for one hour for free. For those who intend to dispose of a large numbers of flares please email email@example.com.
