Sea is best place but from land the best place would be in the centre of the flight path which is by the Cumberland Hotel on 'East Overcliffe Drive' but that area will be busy.

Zippy,

Just head for Bournemouth Pier or the cliff top between Bournemouth and Boscombe and you should be fine. It will be busy though so leave plenty of time.

I can meet you at the slip way (they will all be busy) , and you should make the beach ....however Bournemouth can have some good breaking waves onto the beach which can ruin your boating day...

I'll pm you...:-)

Also going out for the air show, either sat or sun.

Was gonna go from Baiter as that's my usual, would you advise xchurch instead? Thought parking would be better at Baiter as I am sure it will be manic launching!

Great eve yesterday in harbour and studland bay, very choppy and some biggish waves. Got some serious air! Incredible what these little boats can do and cope with!

Not done airshow from sea before, how much rope will I need for my anchor? No depth gauge so unsure if I should take it or just float about.

I'm doing baiter most of next week(I've got an annual permit), then xch sat n Sunday for various bits.

Depth is anywhere from 5 m upwards.

I'm expecting the normal exclusion zone between piers, and usual boat semi madness.....

Oh Red Arrows arrived into Bournemouth yesterday in two fives and the BOB flight just woke me up from snoozing in the garden (they have that effect coming right over you :-) )

The depth on the side parallel to the beach can be easily 12m depth, with a strong tide you might need double that length in line
