A BOATYARD in Gosport is helping yachts prepare for a major race.

Endeavour Quay, in Mumby Road, is helping five high-calibre yachts ahead of the Rolex Fastnet Race.

The marina’s team is using containers, cradles, spare rigs and support vessels to help the boats prepare for the race.

Staff at the marina said they are excited to work with the boats ahead of the challenging 608-mile race.
