Boating is an ever increasing leisure activity and naturally the ports along the Atlantic seaboard are facing a growing demand for facilities for the yachtsman.
The estuaries of the rivers coming down from the montains provide natural havens and a number of the seaside towns have built marinas to cope with this demand.
