Landings Harbor Marina
It certainly felt like summertime in Savannah this past week with the “feels like” temperature in the 100’s and the humidity that comes with that. Saturday was particularly busy, with more than 160 boat moves completed. Sunday was a bit slower, with the threat of storms looming. Our team tidied the dockhand station and the bait room during the slower hours during the week. We said goodbye to our seasonal employees on Saturday with lunch to thank them for spending their summer with us.
The newest t-shirt with the nautical flags on the back has sold extremely well. Replenishments are on its way. In addition, there will be a new Coral Reef color t-shirt with our custom Skidaway Island/Landings Marinas map on the back and a Coastal Blue pocket t-shirt with the custom circle design, with LHM and DCM both represented, coming soon as well. We are excited to share that we have just ordered custom socks! They will be a “Landings” blue sock with Landings Harbor burgees on them. They will arrive in approximately 3-4 weeks.
Landings Harbor wet, dry, and jet ski storage remain at 100% capacity. We have maximized the placement of the current boats occupying appropriate-sized slips and have made space for a couple T-top boats that have been on our waiting list.
The Landings Sailing Program
The Landings Sailing Club was not able to go out on the smaller Rhodes sailboats during the Beer Can Race last Friday due to higher winds than normal. The J-24’s did sail, and all had a fabulous time at the social portion of the event that evening. Saturday, July 31st, they participated in a Regatta that was organized by our club and included participation by the Skidaway Island Yacht Club.

This week gave us some extreme heat and rain following in the days after. This caused a slower than normal summer business week but gave us great time for routine maintenance. All the weeds growing from cracks on the dock were pulled. The dock office and ship store exterior were deep cleaned (spiders and algae). Then we rebuilt three of our dock carts using parts that we had on hand. We planned a destination cruise with a Hilton Head boating club to come spend an afternoon with us in October. A 40’ barge that is working on the new President’s Street bridge stayed a night with us to avoid storms on their way North.
You may have recognized that the number 1 and number 2 buoys are missing from the entrance to the cut. Staff pulled the green marker for repairs, and after careful inspection, it is beyond repair. The number 1 marker was taken by Elsa and is yet to be found. The buoys were budgeted for replacement this year. New markers are on order through our supplier and are scheduled for delivery in September. The new markers are Taylor
