Anyone else thinking of going form Poole?
Still tempted by Alderney - but can't see the weather being good enough for me, so this looks a safer option.

I'm sort of waiting to see if there will be a Saturday group going to Alderney, but it does seem a hell of a trek for just one night. So Christchurch or the J class boats or the return of the clipper bots look like decent Alternatives. Let's hope the weather is kind for all the events going on that weekend.

I'm still planning to be launching at Christchurch at about 8 - 8.30 - breakfast at Tuckton Tea Gardens then down the beach for a BBQ and sit in the sun. If its calm enough I may head out towards the Needles as the Alderney lot will be comeing back at some time ( I just need to read the threaed for thier return ETA)

I'll be around Sat and Sun. Get my boat back this afternoon - after about 3 months and just in time for the good weather. Result! Gutted it was too late for Alderney, but having had it re tubed, I need to give it a good thrashing before I try anything too adventurous. I'll do a thread all about my tube woes in due course.

I'm local so no idea on campsites - sorry.

Going to put it back on your old mooring tonight Peter

Campsites

Hi all
There are lots of campsites in the New Forest
If you go to Welcome to The Club - The Camping and Caravanning Club and put a search in for Christchurch
You dont have to be a member to use their campsites

Not sure who made it out, but out was a great day out there.nice and hot for once! Saw Aries out and about looking good. I had a great play in the wake of Poole lifeboat all along the bay and a really good display by the hunter including a couple of very very fast passes :-) .
