Landings Harbor Marina
This week was a typical summer week in Savannah and at the marina. Hot and muggy starts to the days and then afternoon storms were the norm on the weekdays. We had a beautiful, sunny weekend which made our boaters very happy. Both forklifts were humming along with over 265 boat moves over Saturday and Sunday. During the week our staff removed the floating seagrass that had migrated into our basin during the shifting tides and winds.
This is the final week that we have our summer staff with us. We will truly miss Carter Mondy, a Landings resident, and Foster Burgess, Sean Burgess’s nephew, but wish them all the best as they get ready to go to Virginia Tech and Georgia Southern! We are happy to announce that Jack Anderson, a Landings resident, will be joining our Marinas team beginning next week. He will be coming in as a part-time team member while he attends Savannah State University.
The marina had some unexpected visitors this week in the basin. A manatee and her calf came by to say hello and snack on the shoreline marsh grass. Did you know that the manatee is most closely related to an elephant?
A baby calf stays right by her mom for two years before going off on its own.
The marina store has received a shipment of the new limited-edition sunglasses that are a collaboration between RHEOS and Southern Tide. They have all the same great features as the original RHEOS, but they have added some new styles. The Southern Tide Collection comes with a special case and microfiber cloth to clean the lenses.
We also have two new shirt styles! The first is a Vapor solar hooded long sleeve shirt with the burgee on the front and the nautical flags that represent “LHM” on the back. The second shirt is a Pima cotton t-shirt from Indigo (this company sources it’s cotton from GA and has them made in SC) with the same burgee/nautical flag design. The custom solar shirts created for The Landings Sailing Club are expected to be in store next week. The majority of which have already been spoken for by current club members. We are currently working with Tervis to bring back custom Landings Harbor tumblers and stainless-steel cups.
Landings Harbor wet, dry, and jet ski storage slots remain at 100% capacity. We are filling up vacated slips as quickly as they come open. We are in the process of going through all the slips to see if there are any adjustments that could be made to free up larger spaces that might be occupied by smaller boats at this time. This would make room for some of the larger boats on our waiting list.
The Landings Sailing Program

Landings Dry Storage Activity
Delegal Creek Marina
Summer operating Hours 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Delegal Creek Marina
Delegal Marina had a very pleasant week hosting several kayakers enjoying the rental program. A few transients passed through, two of which were repeat visitors. The Landings Company seemed to have many “discovery visit” tours this week. One family put the screened room to use for an afternoon gathering over the weekend. Not nearly as much rain as last week, but still some occasional scattered storms.
Delegal Creek Marina continues to add residents to the waiting list for wet slips.
Staff continues to implement recommendations from the Chubb risk management inspection adding signage on the fuel dock as well as upgrading the life ring buoys with new retrieving lines.
