as I have lived here since I was 3, something you should all know as you run along port creek that runs along side the motorway, there is a blue footbridge between the railway and round about, people hoof trolleys and all kinds of rubbish off that bridge so trim up is my advice and take it slow and cautiously,

Sounds like it might be worth a low tide recce the day before. Having said that, I think I'll also be doing a high tide recce of the bridges we have to get under as the earlier post concerning clearances has me wondering whether my console will be a problem.

hi all ,wondering if this is still on ?

still very new to sea sibbing so not sure where we launch etc very keen to do portsmouth but i know they have patrol boats ! will this be a problem without vhf

i`m assuming were not going tooooo far out to, one thing i did find on the durdle door run was how hard it was to judge distances and finding the launch points . i guess this comes with experience

I'm still up for it...a lack of radio I don't think will be a problem...I've got a spare anyhow.

How's this for a plan:
  • Meet at Camber Dock 10.00 for 10.30 start
  • Head up Portsmouth Harbour and round into Port Creek
  • Bimble through Langstone Harbour and out into the Solent avoiding the West Winner bank
  • Head for Portsmouth Harbour entrance via inshore boat passage through submarine barrier
  • Once past Clarence Pier cut across to head for small boat channel into Portsmouth
  • Head into Portsmouth Harbour as far as Ballast Buoy, radio QHM and cross back to Camber
  • Lunch at the Bridge Tavern

This should mean that we have enough water at the top, and get through both harbour entrances before the tide starts running too hard. I think it's probably a better idea than stopping for a dubious lunch at the Ferryboat Inn!

The whole jaunt is around 13 miles and the speed limit is 10 knots so we should have plenty of time to take it easy.
