Plenty of pontoons around there so you should be spoilt for choice. If the sun is out Hamble can get busy and parking can be an issue so arrive early.

Good luck

Also.....the long stay carpark(50m) from slip gets full early and has a 2.1m height restriction.

Much after 9am on a decent weekend....forget it...!

The short stay (effective from 1st April) has only a 4hrs max waiting limit, and doesn't have any height restrictions. This carpark is right next to the slip in front of the the pub.

You will need a rope to recover anything other than low tide, and it'll need to be 20m long.

Trailers have to be stored in the long stay car park, the official bays in the car park fill up quickly, but there is space on the grass verge on the left that you are encouraged to use.

There is a fee to use slip, about 7, but I don't see many people going to the Harbour master to pay....

I pay an annual fee, which gets me a lovely sticker, and they seem to be happy for me to use the visitors mooring (for free) for half n hour whilst I launch/recover the boat.

I should be around that weekend Bingo....

There is some hope of some ribnobber action from Calshot that weekend. But ...no firm detail yet.

It's like sibclub....but more ribcraft club...and we don't talk about it..(first rule....don't talk about it). But one member loves sr4s and anything orange....so 'be fine
