Evening All,
Just re-confirming that we will be there next Saturday.
We will be leaving from the Camber, Portsmouth.
Being a bit of a newbie:-
Where is "old Harry" and very roughly how long will it take to get to this RV from Camber.

The Old Harry rocks are just on the southern end of Studland bay. I guess a bit over 30 miles from Camber.

It was the only way I could enjoy the scenery and shut the yakking up which was non stop from Lulworth! Worked a treat after the initial scream!

Once through solent between needles and hurst castle you have two choices straight across to old harry or slightly longer route along coast passed hengisbury head past southbourne past boscombe and bournmouth and sandbanks to entrance of poole harbour then turn left past shell bay and studland to old harry rocks.

It looks like a spring tide that day, with low water at 15:50m - 0.7m. Does anyone know what is the earliest time we could recover at Baiter? Is Avocet's 5:15 about right? It looks like the only 'all states of the tide' ramp in Poole is Cobbs Quay, but it looks pretty expensive :-(

Weather forecast for Saturday looking pretty dodgy, although different from different sources.

Looking for some guidance here from more experienced as I will probably be the smallest (5M+75hp) have been vertical and its scary but never been round St Albans)
I've done it several times and I'm smaller than you

Hi -if work still permits I still want to make this one.

Who is launching from the Weymouth area ? I know where Bowleaze is, but have never launched from there. Is that the best location, or are there better sites in the area ( especially if we can help each other out... And i may well need all the help i can get..☺ )

Thanks, jAMES.
