Meet the team member – Kevin John
We’re giving you the chance to find out more about the team at Milford Marina. This month, we talk to Kevin John!
Docks & Marina Supervisor
What is the best thing about working at Milford Marina?
Meeting the diverse range of people that arrive at the marina and working closely with my colleagues in other departments.
I also find that no two days are ever the same, the job is so varied, lifting boats and towing vessels one day to working the lock gates at Pier Head the next.
Have you got any special skills/talents or hobbies?
I am a 5th dan karate instructor and run my local karate club in Milford Haven. I have won many domestic competitions, but my highlight is winning a bronze medal at the 2017 IKU World Championships in Kilkenny in Ireland. I am hoping to compete at the WUKF World Championships in Slovakia next June.
What is your best tip/advice for berth holders?
Always be prepared! Make sure you have a life jacket, always carry a handheld radio with you when you’re out on your boat, and make sure you have plenty of fendering and lines to avoid damage to your vessel.
