Bournemouth Air Festival

Where is the best place to view the display from the water ? Anyone know where the red arrows reference point would be on the land (where they line up to fly over so your in the flight path from the water) ?

There will be a large rectangle of water front bouyed off and patrolled to stop muppets going in.

On the cliff will be a large red cross, they will mark the mid point of the display box for the aircrews and is a good place to aline your RIB. However so does everyone else, so it will be busy. Be very prepared to fend off loads of other boats, as the attempts to anchor properly has to be seen to be believed! Even saw some SIBs last year trying to anchor with a sea achour and they could not under stand why they were still drifting ....

We are running daily trips for the whole show so will see you out there

Steve

Somewhere near the end Pier - Poole-side. That's where I was last year and got a great view.

I have been for the last 2 years - the positions are clearly marked by buoys - the rest is easy - just look where the other boats are anchored. You will get a great view whatever.

Will be on our way back from West Country on Sunday so will hopefully pass by as the Red Arrows do their thing.

Does anyone have a plan of the no-go area, or know where I can find one? I am trying to understand what beaches I will be able to get to to pick up passengers.

You can pick plans up in and around Poole, but that might not help you now.

Basically, you will be able to use beaches to the West of Bournemouth Pier and to the East of Boscombe Pier.

Regards
Steve

You should also be aware of the local byelaws when picking up from Bournemouth beaches: http://www.bournemouth.gov.uk/Visito...watercraft.asp

We're hoping to be out spectating over the week-end so hope to see you (although cloud/rain is looking somewhat unsettled at the moment).

This is the best schedule available online:

The brochure (which costs) may have more detail but I've not seen it.
