For those interested in learning how to play this venerable game from the Far East, please come along to the Marina Hotel Bar at 1pm on Sunday, 12th November. New players always most welcome and you will be gently guided into the experience.

Learn all about Pungs, Kongs, Chows, Dragons, Winds, Flowers, Seasons, Twittering Sparrows, and all sort of other interesting stuff – the game is played with a set of tiles.

While quite straight-forward to pick up, it does lead to some fiendish complexity and strategy as experience grows, as you aim for the highest scoring hands – fun, nonetheless.

Circulation Tax

Date: 26th October at 8:39 am
By: andrew.susan.andromeda

The Circulation Tax has caused some keen interest of late. 

Following extensive dialogue with the relevant authorities it can be confirmed that at this point in time the Circulation Tax is only applied to boats and yachts built after 1986 and with an engine generating over 20 Kw (26.82 HP).  The tax rate is based only on engine size – in 2017 it is €2,65 per Kw (1 Kw = 0.7457 HP).

The 183-day rule applies to a continuous period in any one tax year – January to December.  This means that a documented absence of over 3 days in early July will break continuity. 

Of interest to Marina berth holders, the standard Marina 9-month winter contract (mid-September to mid-June), avoids the requirement to pay the tax in both years.

Music Night – Friday, 13th October

Date: 12th October at 10:47 am
By: andrew.susan.andromeda

All musicians, singers and dancers are most welcome to the start of a new Music Night season!

More a “jam” session where all can join in and bring along favourite songs – old, new, modern and, well anything. All instruments welcome, and players of all levels most welcome, so dust off those in the dark corners and come along and give them an outing.

All most welcome and we look forward to seeing folks there.

7:30pm, Marina Hotel Bar – till…….late


Beach Clean-up – 28th October

Date: 2nd October at 8:36 am
By: andrew.susan.andromeda

Summer is fast receding and with it our many welcomed guests, tourists and holiday makers.

A big initiative, lead by our marina and other local organizations, to remove all of that end of season detritus  ESPECIALLY THOSE PLASTICS that are choking our wildlife.

On Saturday 28th October many local organizations are gathering at Linda’s Bar on Meia Praia Beach at 9am to clean up the beach so why don’t we also turn up and join with our hosts to make Lagos a better place?

Only 2 hours and bags and gloves will be provided.

Looking forward to seeing you there.


Meet & Greet – 11th October, 6pm

Date: 2nd October at 8:34 am
By: andrew.susan.andromeda

By Wed 11th Oct many of previous years berth-holders will have returned to Lagos.  ARC 2017 will be gathering, the Strollers will have stopped whatever they do on those long summer evenings and the motor homes will have applied the winter hand brake so once again party time kicks off and with it the now traditional Meet and Greet at Spinnakers.

The formula is simple.  Just pitch up with a small plate of finger food at 1800, in Spinnakers Bar, and mingle with old friends and new.

Must stress ALL ARE WELCOME –  tourists and holiday makers, love to see you and you might like to meet the other side of life in Lagos.
