The Caroline Bay Marina was formally opened in a ribbon-cutting ceremony this afternoon.
Despite light showers around 100 people trekked to Morgan’s Point for the ribbon cutting, including developers Nelson Hunt and Craig Christensen and a number of sailors from the boats already docked at the marina.
Mr Christensen said that servicing the island’s visitors was the top priority, saying: “It’s about us takimg care of our guests and for them and, for them to come down here the first time, this is really, really important for us.”
They noted their partner in the project, Brian Duperreault, who was unable to attend, and former premier Alex Scott, who Mr Hunt desribed as a visionary in the Caroline Bay project.
Even before the ceremony began, around a dozen vessels of varying size were docked on the marina’s floating arms.
Michael Dunkley, the Premier, noted the history of the site, praising the developers for sticking with their vision and developing a valuable new asset for the island.
