I need a replacement slip to Camber Dock

Now that theres very limited trailer parking at Camber, i need to find a different slip for us with our 6m rib.
Someone mentioned a good slip into the Itchen, with easy parking and full tidal range, any ideas as to exactly where it might be so that i can try it out.
We so miss our beloved Camber😢

Hi,

Yes it's a shame about the situation at The Camber at the moment. However, don't be too sad as it won't be that long before "normality" is restored.

Construction work on the Ben Ainslie Racing (BAR) building is drawing to a close and it will not be long before the contractors vehicles (which currently take up most of the available parking) are gone. I've taken a picture of the site "as is" today.

In the next few weeks the plan is to open a new 65-space "pay & display" car park along with a dedicated trailer park. I can't be precise on timing as yet, but will keep you posted.

Currently, there is "unofficial" permission to leave trailers at the top of the slipway, but space is limited. Parking wise - it's like the wild west down here with car being more abandoned than parked and very little traffic management. (I think the wardens have been told to stay away at the moment). Please don't park in my KB spaces though, as they are rigorously patrolled and it will cost you 60 if you get a ticket!!!

So, normality will be restored and I'll keep people updated.

Regards

Steve

Hi Steve,

Many thanks for such a comprehensive reply, I quite thought that Portsmouth council wouldn't be that bothered about replacing the old trailer park as it didn't really bring any real revenue in other than the pay and display part for the tow car!!
Would be great to be able to use the slip again, so I'll look forward to your updates on the situation,

BAR unveil new sponsors today - can you guess??

What it has done is made them speed up the building work and the first lot of construction containers have now gone from what will be the "pay & display" publi car park and trailer park

So things will be back to "normal" quite soon.

Regards

Steve

Is it me, or does the design of the building make it look as if the Union Flag is upside down?
I'll get me coat

Good to see the parking coming back, came down to Camber a couple of weeks ago and was horrified to find nowhere to park the car / trailer! Tim at the KB centre was really helpful though. Such a nice site because you can load the family on safely and cleanly at any tide state.

What's the chances of launching and parking a car and trailer here this Sunday (5th July)?

AJ,

I would think you should be OK.

The contractors have all but gone and that has taken some of the strain off parking. The photo attached shows that the last few containers are being removed (today) from what will be the Pay & Display car park (to the right of the pic) and last week-end people were parking cars and trailers in that area. It's not my land so I can't give any official opinion, but nobody seemed too concerned last weekend.

Finally, if you get stuck, give me a call - I'm sure I can give you some helpful advice.

Kind regards

Thanks Steve.
Might have to chance it, launching anywhere else is proving problematic due to tide times and I'm working til late on Saturday.

Hi AJ - I think I might try there as well. Are you doing the RIOW?
