Solent Cruise 19th Sept 2004

The Timboli clan (Paul, Runaground Sue and Tim), David Manning, and Richard B and Louise are going to be out in the Solent on Sunday 19th. If you're around and want to meet up please come and find us. Rough plan is to be at Calshot for 10am, then (weather permitting) heading down to Yarmouth for lunch, then up to Ryde for a short stop, and finally to The Folly Inn for tall tales and fishy stories. Next week, we'll post more details. You'll be able to recognise us as we'll be flying the skull and cross-bones.

Hope to see lots of you then.

Hi Louise & Clan,
Me and the family hope to be there. Can anyone recommend a launch site that will give us full tide access in that area as we will drive down on the morning.

calshot it self is a good spot, all tidal and has trailer parking.

Hamble point, £20 a day i think, gets you car and trailer parking, use of slipway, showers and toilets, jetty to tie up to after launching. It may be all tidal but is definatly on gravel 2 hours either side of low water and rather shallow. Concrete, steep and wide 4 hours either side of HW.

The Camber, Portsmouth. All tidal, concrete, pay and display parking next to it.

Count us in too Louise, we'll be traveling down saturday and staying in cowes overnight.

Go to Warsash

Good slipway 24 hrs but very long. Bring a good rope.

Free parking about 100 metres away and a Pub on the slip.

5 mins and your in the middle of the Solent,

Would recommend Calshot over Warsash. Plenty of room both to park and to launch, better slip and you are right on the Solent proper rather than being up Southampton water.

Thats Handy

Thats handy because I was l was looking forward to going on an organised treasure hunt on that day but it has been cancelled . Still a totally off the cuff meeting of like minded ribsters could be just as much fun! I wonder if anyone could think of anything to make it a bit more interesting for the youngsters, nothing too organised, you know.

Will do our best to join you - missed all the other organised meets due to work committments etc - we will probably launch Warsash as we will be camping that side of Southampton anyway. Might need to wait for us if it is rough - we are only little!

Just so Louise and I (and Paul, Sue & Tim as well) aren't the only ones dressed up as pirates, don't forget to get your gear sorted in good time. You could get a suitable flag here: http://www.sillyjokes.co.uk/dress-up/acc/pirates/ (if you like - it's not compulsory!)

Campsite nearby?

Can anybody recommend a family campsite somewhere on the south coast, maybe near a beach or arcades or something where we can stay over on the saturday night and drive easily to Calshot in the morning?

Thanks

Rich L

Hi Rich

Here's a link to some New Forest campsites: http://www.newforest-online.co.uk/nf...t/camping.shtm

Can't recommend any personally, I'm afraid, as it's a long time since we camped in the area! Hopefully, someone local may be able to help?

Looking forward to meeting you.

Hi Rich
We generally use The Kingfisher Site at Stokes Bay Gosport which has facilities for kids and a good onsite club.
There is another caled Dibles in Warsash but that is quite basic.
Both are East of Southampton so if you are launching at Calshot it is quite a hike. There are several in the New Forest but most seem to be in a field with basic facilities and there is always the problem of a pony joining you!
Other than that I expect there are several around Lymington.
I did see campers and caravans near Calshot but cant remember if there is a proper site there?
Martyn

Hi Rich

Your best bet from the Forestry Commission sites are either Ashurst (good facilities, big site, but noisy train nearby) or Hollands Wood (good facilities, more peaceful if you keep away from the side nearest the road).

Unless you have your own toilet facilities your limited to Ashurst or Hollands Wood campsites on the calshot side of the forest.

Both Ashurst and Hollands wood have facilities within easy walking distance.Pubs ,Chip shops ,Indian and Chinese take aways .

Hollands Wood - I can recommend the Foresters in Brockenhurst for very reasonable food and good ringwood 49’er – which would probably swing it for me.

Ashurst – New forest hotel right next to the campsite – Fullers pub. Other people recommend the Happy Cheese pub just over the railway bridge but I have’nt tried it.

Cheers

Phil

Afraid my wooden leg will not be back from the French Polishers until the following day, my buckle won't swash any more and my parrot keeps saying "Pieces of 7".
