The approach to Carteret is dead simple, theres loads of room as long as the tide is up, ie when theres access up the river to the marina. It is shallow for a long way out otherwise, I had a bit of a suprise once when I looked over the side at 40 knots

Morning folks,

If you are having any problems with accomodation I have just booked my rooms at the Hotel Marina. I emailed them this morning and they still have some rooms available if you need them.


The link to the website is http://www.hotelmarine.com/

The hotel looks very nice and is near the high street and about 5 - 10 mins walk to the marina.

Hope that helps

Julian
