I'm hoping to go down for the Friday race and was thinking of watching it around Hurst Point too.
Peter: Where would you recommend launching nearby?

Thanks Matt.

Do you know whether they'd be fussy about me staying there overnight in my camper van?

Would that be the public slipway in the park at Christchurch? What's access to the Solent like from there and same question about overnight stop?

Thats the one - in & out of the harbour from 9 to 5.30 Sat & sun . Five mins down the river/harbour and another 15 mins to Hurst / Needles etc.

Not sure about overnight - have seen people do it And I reckon as long as you are subtle you'll be OK . May have to pay for the car park over night ?
