Milford Marina is well positioned to offer varied and extensive cruising with options to suit all ranges of experience from the novice to the blue water sailor.

Support facilities are excellent with good road and rail links making crew changes easy. To aid navigation, a number of pilot books cover the immediate and extended areas, enabling skippers to exercise their responsibilities in selecting passages and destinations appropriate to their boat and background. (The tidal flows in the area deserve particular respect and weather conditions should always be considered prior to departure.)
