Under the rotational arrangement for Board Members, Graham Smith and John Sutherland stood down at the end of October. Graham did not seek re-appointment due to other commitments, and the Board expressed their appreciation of his contribution over the last two years.

Press adverts and interviews for replacements, overseen by an independent party, resulted in the re-appointment of John Sutherland, who the Board are delighted to welcome back.

The Board are also pleased to announce that the new Member is David Steven, who will serve for 3 years, and whose experience, business skills and contacts will be valuable assets in the management and promotion of the Harbour.

Our Marina Phase 1 is now in place and looking great, and ready in time for next week's HarbourFest celebrations.  

All are agreed it is a quality installation by our local suppliers, VARIS Engineering Ltd, Forres, Morayshire, who pulled out all the stops to have it ready on time.  Well done to all concerned. 

Wick Harbour Marina Phase 1

There are approximately 10 berths depending on vessel size, with half for residents and half for visitors, and applications for permanent berths were well over-subscribed which augurs well for our proposed 70 berth installation planned for next year.
