L’Hermitage residents enjoy day out at the Jersey Boat Show

Some of our residents at L’Hermitage nursing home in St Peter recently enjoyed the spectacle that is the annual Jersey Boat Show, which is held during the Spring Bank Holiday weekend from Saturday 5th – Monday 7th May.

This spectacular event is held around the award-winning St Helier Marina, Weighbridge Place and Marina Gardens and is organised by Ports of Jersey.

The marina was awash with amazing vessels on display, ranging from super yachts and luxury cruisers to more practical water craft such as to canoes, paddle boards.

Not only can you look at them but some were open to the public to step aboard and view. We all agreed that some of the luxury boats were like a small house or apartment featuring all the mod cons and more you could possibly need. They truly are magnificent.

The show was a fabulous day out and had a real festival feel about it with stalls selling everything from arts and crafts, bric-a- brac, lots of sea memorabilia and paraphernalia, cakes, and food venders galore. ​One of the highlights of this year’s show was the welcome return of visiting Royal Navy assets, including HMS MERSEY.

One of our residents was a boat builder by trade and so was over the moon to see the variety of sea vessel available nowadays.

We all had a fantastic day out and basked in the glorious sunshine whilst we explored all the show had to offer. We all went home with big smiles and lots of stories to tell. We can’t wait til next year’s show but we are very lucky as Jersey does not disappoint with lots of events throughout the year for us to attend and enjoy.
