Is it a sand or shingle beach and do you get many waves. IE, can you pull your boat on to shore after launching whilst your sorting your car and not get all the bottom scratched. Or should you anchor off ?

Anchoring off is best-it's sand/shingle beach but there's lumps of concrete dotted around on the bottom. The bottom is mud either side of the slip once you go 20-30 feet out.

What time are you planning to launch?

re: launching - If any of you are yachties ....

... it might be worth checking if your yacht club has a reciprocal arrangement with either Parkstone or Poole Yacht clubs. They also have quite a lot of slipway facility, and I can't imagine it being oversubscribed on New Years Day

Just a thought

Parkstone would be nearly impossible-you need a pass card to get in through the barrier (My Dad's yacht is there). Don't know about PYC.


I'm not sure on launch time yet-I'll be down there early I guess but can't speak for anyone else!

A party have booked the trip boat for a new years eve trip, if it runs to the usual form I normally manage to pour them off about 4am, so may set off just after that, the roads should be quiet I should be in Poole for 7am and get a couple of hours sleep in the car

I shall try and be there for 1000 hrs at the latest. I'm usually on time so even if we start at 1000 hrs we should get 5 daylight hours. Enough I should think for a BBQ and a visit to Lulworth.
Might even get down earlier.

It's stickied now

I tend to only stick events at the top of the page if it looks like they're going to involve more than a handful of people. Otherwise every thread would be a "Note"!

People can always request it for a particular thread if they think I've overlooked it.

Fraid not just the standard rate
But the bar takings more than make up for it, we stack extra bar supplies every where, even the stern deck and bow thruster locker gets used for extra bar stock
