I really don't think this will be a problem for any of the sibs, but as we'll be bringing a little extra 'draft' its worth us being cautious

Looking forward to it.
I'm not too concerned about there being enough draft beneath us. Still think it's going to be tight going under the bridges on the top of the tide, but conditions on Sunday are looking to be ideal - so long as I can get the boat in the water!

Depends what you mean by half decent. If you're 'self-sufficient' then we've previously pointed friends/relatives to this place "Drove Lea Farm - caravans and camping. Hampshire." and they've found it fine for a couple of nights or so.

It's not much more than a field so you'll need your own toilet/wash facilities, but they do have electric hook-up, water and chemical disposal point. Pretty cheap too.

If you need something with 'facilities' then you could try Campsites Fareham | Camping and Caravanning | Ellerslie House though I have no idea what it's like.

Hi AJ/Wibs, I'm now sorted for getting down to Warsash slip on Sunday morning. Thanks for your offers of assistance but won't need to bother you now. Look forward to meeting you all on Sunday morning.

Out of interest, has anyone nominated a channel for us to communicate on?

We used that one for a Searider bash a few years ago. Not too bad, but if you need to flush a motor their water pressure was rather low. You'd probably need to prebook, and I don't remember there being marked pitches.

The entrance is tight if you're towing a rib.
