"If you decide to launch from Northney, Low Water +1Hr will allow you to navigate out through Langstone Harbour Via the Hayling Road Bridge Dries at Low Water. Otherwise you will haw to go out via the Chichester Bar.(long way round). It is very good at Northney although slip is steep on Low Water."
thanks for the info - low water is 1256 on Sunday so I plan on launching mid-morning & going under the bridge. Might possibly come back the long way via the Chichester Bar. Slip shouldn't be a problem with a landrover. Hopefully there will be a few others out in the solent if the weather is not too bad - if so see you on the water (will have the family & a large coolbox so a beer for any ribnetters I happen across
