another item we may have over looked is the tides!!!

here they are and heights(SOUTHAMPTON)

16/7/2006 HW 02:10 4.3MTRS
16/7/2006 LW 08:06 0.6 MTRS
16/7/2006 HW 14:52 4.4MTRS
16/7/2006 LW 20:31 0.8 MTRS

not really good times there we will be launching and retrieving on low water
is this ok with the larger boats at calshot ? i know it is ok for a 4.8 mtr rib but not sure with 6 mtr or above
Hi colin

there is the slip round the side onto the pontoon that is possible with the smaller boats, i can only slip and recover there around the high tide times by a couple of hours, however have used the main large concrete slip at low tide and that is fine, once launched can move along to the side to more sheltered waters while parking trailer etc so should be ok. we launch and recover both slips with just the bm and dont have any issues, but it is rear wheel drive.

WE will be launching from calshot, is there plenty of parking fascillities for car and trailer, is this a definate cruise or are we still relying on a good forecast. and does any body have a spare loan of a chart for iow ,solent as seem to be having difficulty obtaining one. just in case, you never know. REally looking forward to it, never cruised the south yet.

there is plenty of parking at calshot but i will give them a call tomorrow morning to see if they have much on the 16th and give them some warnings of numbers etc, there are a few slip way choices round the solent area. we will be trying another out this weekend to see what it is like.

we will keep an eye on the weather to see what it is shaping up like as really want to do another trip round the IOW as the family have not done it before.

As the numbers are mounting up a bit on this cruise I am looking into the best options etc and seeing if we can negotiate discounts on slippage etc

At Calshot that weekend they have the RNLI open day, also a sailing event with 12 skiffs or however you spell it, and with the tides etc only the main slipway will be operational. I would suspect that at normal launching times and recovery times it will be quite busy but if you slip early in the morning and recover later then you could be fine.

I am not sure how many folks are launching etc from slips and were thinking of going to calshot to slip, but it is going to be their busiest weekend of the year, which is nice but if there is a few of us it might pay to split up across a couple of slipways etc but meet up on the water at a predetermined location.

I am considering putting in at either Calshot earlier in the morning or Camber Dock and will do a reccie tomorrow and will post a few pics of the Camber dock location etc.

prices for camber dock are 2.50 each way, you put the money in a machine so if the barrier is up you get a free slip.... then 8 quid for car parking for the day and there is a trailer park

for calshot the prices are 13 quid for boats less than 6m and 16.50 quid for boats over 6m, they guy can measure as he has markers so cant get away with much. that price includes slippage and parking

My recommendation would be if using calshot for slippage then get there early and allow time to slip on a potentially busy slip as with the tides the operational slips will be limited to the main one

If anyone has any other good slips to recommend then please advise for the folks travelling down that may not be familar with the area.

will keep you posted on developments and if you could advise if you are slipping and potentially from where that will help as someone may have a good slip option we could benefit from

weather update!!!!

right folks we are getting near to a reliable time frame now ,another couple of days and we can be a bit more positive for the 16th

temps = 20oc+
winds = between 6mph and 10 mph
conditions = sunny spells /part cloudy


high pressure to our north west drawing winds in from north east
no rain forcast at pressent and winds fairly light ,my guess would be 3/6 mph winds .good sunny spells with occasional cloud no rain

all in all looking promising ,but don`t hold your breath just yet it could all go pete tong


calshot open day!!!16/7/2006

this will reduce the parking area the slipway is still usable but with extra caution especially on return ,last year there was people every where but slip is still usable .my advise for anyone coming down is to come early and be patient
