Fareham this Sunday

Hoping to be out on the water this Sunday. Have launched at Warsash past 2 weekends (had the usual helpful shoreside admiral with pint in hand giving unwanted advice last Friday) but was thinking of trying Lower Quay at Fareham this week - anyone used it recently can give any handy tips etc?

I would keep your fingers crossed there is somewhere to park the car and trailer... Fairly sure Fairweather Marine still had loads of boats in their adjacent car-park.. If you do manage to get launched, and parked, then allow a minimum of 25 minutes tootling along before you get to pompey harbour entrance.. Your also very restricted tide wise.. Personally, I would go further down, and launch at Haslar.. They have put a pontoon back alongside, so it's easier to launch and recover.. Only drawback, is that you now have to pay for both car and trailer, even if you leave it in the little car-park at the top of the slip..

Only really about a 2hrs either side of HW, does get a little muddy after this. Would have thought Haslar would be more suited Pete at least 3hrs either side of HW 2.5 just to be safe though. You will need two car parking tickets though 6 total I think.


Have a look at the Boat Launch Website.

thanks guys
having heard what you've said & checked the tides I'll probably try somewhere else on Sunday- maybe Hayling or back to Warsash. You've saved me a wasted trip anyway
cheers
Pete

Cheers Roy

I was thinking of Northney - its probably the nearest to where the boat is stored but i haven't yet launched from there. I assume the natives are friendly - the launch fee also covers the car & trailer parking I understand

Northney Marina

Hi Pete L

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.

Have a good day.

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
