What time do people want to leave Poole? How about 10:00 -10:30
The weather maps are not looking to good at the moment but are changing hourly, we will have to see how things develop during the week.

The AA route isn't the easiest way when towing.

From the M27 follow signs to Ringwood then Bournemouth via A338.

When you get to the 50 limits follow signs for Poole.
Pick up signs for Poole Town centre when they appear then signs for Poole Park

Pass Poole Park boating lake on your left. At the roundabout take the 1st exit.

Pick up the brown signs for Public Slipway.


If you get lost at any time follow signs for Poole Quay (there's loads). Drive ALL the way along the Quay with the water on your right. Take the 1st proper right turn then after about 300 yards turn right into the carpark with the slipway in. Slipway is right at the end of the carpark. There's taps there for flushing.

Rick,

1000 hrs for 1030 hrs is fine. As you say lets see what the weather brings.

Nos thanks for the directions. Must get Autoroute loaded back on. Would make things simpler.

No probs

When you get to Ringwood stick in the left lane for Bournemouth A338 and ignore the signs for Poole-it's an arse of a road to tow on.

BTW ignore the 'quay visitors' signs-it's the ones that say Poole Quay that you want. The visitors ones will send you to a carpark.

Hi Everyone,

I'm local to Poole & thought this might be of interest if your visit stays more local than Lulworth due to weather:

http://www.pooletourism.com/eventsca...curanceId=6780

Its the New Year's Day Bath Race held on the town quay & can be good fun to watch.....just a thought.

Have a great day.

Micheal

P.S. Would follow Nos4r2's directions especially if towing.

I think we are all waiting to see what the weather is going to do.

Would be nice to meet up with you though.

Regards Nick R.

Weather

The forcasts for new years day are not looking good at the moment
Solent area: W 4-5
Poole area: W 5-6
Weymouth area: W 6-7
Still have a few days for things to change but not looking hopeful.
May be time to start thinking about possible alternative destinations, Poole to Studland , Poole to Swanage, or explore the bits of Poole harbour you always mean to see but never do (the worlds second largest harbour).

If you're planning on staying local then you can always have a bit of a burn around in Poole bay. NB although the harbour speed limit is a inapplicable as it is off season it'd be a bit of a p!sser for everyone else to have al load of RIBs screaming around the harbour. After that you can always head up the Wareham channel. Although the trip up the channel is pretty pedestrian (6 knt limit through the nature area) you can tie up at Wareham quay and the sample any of the pubs in the town (only 5 mins walk from quay).

Another option if you're staying in the harbour is to see if the Shell Bay fish restaurant is open. They've got top tucker and I seem to remember they even have a small jetty so that you can moor up and walk straight in.

Shell bay itself is shallow enough that you can take the bows of a RIB straight up onto the beach. Could be good for a beach BBQ, and only just outside the harbour

Just a few thoughts

Andrew
