  • 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.
Sounds good to me. I'll probably launch at Warsash and motor round to the meet up at Camber. Still a little concerned as to whether I'll clear the bridges at either end of Port Creek, but am happy to give it a go.

My thoughts it is a long way for some of us to come for 13 miles. Maybe those that want to stay out can splinter off from those that are meeting family and need to get back?

Hi John, sounds like a good day out for the guys? Wish we could join you, but we're a bit too big! (And a rib anyway) lol. A bit of info regarding getting back into Portsmouth harbour. If you are coming in from the east, which you will be, you don't need to cross over to the small boat channel & Ballast bouy. Rules say keep close to starboard avoiding main channel. Makes sense really, as crossing over would be more dangerous? Enjoy! John

Exactly my plan too....never launched at Camber and been wondering if we get numbers then will it accommodate us all..?

Happy to launch at my local, and meet up at Camber.

NSS, what will you be running? I also have a slight concern my 4.5 Adventure (minus a frame) will get under the bridges.

Going to try and have a high/low tide reccy next week somewhen.

They used to say that I think, but not any more:

"Small Boats must enter and leave the harbour through the Small Boat Channel."

Queen's Harbour Master - Portsmouth - General Directions

We'll need to cross south of No 4 buoy which is just off Clarence Esplanade.

We'll stick with round Portsmouth, but no problem af anyone wants to go further afield. If the weather is good we might do a Chichester Harbour jaunt for a picnic at East Head the following Saturday (13th).

Hi Wibs

We'll be in a Walker Bay Generation 430 RIB. No A frame to worry about, but we might have to tilt the console to get under the bridges (never tried that whilst underway before!).

Planning to launch around 9.30am and motor straight round to Camber. Where will you be launching from?

How daft is that then? Crossing a main shipping channel not once but twice!
Thanks for the 'heads-up' on that one John.
