Warsash is quite a good bet - useable at most states of tide except maybe LWS (and HWS when the water is nearly up to the road).

Free parking 200m away but when it's busy they do like you to split car and trailer and put the trailer up on the grass verge.

No charge for the slip, waiting pontoon available, but don't use the new fisherman's one. Quite easy to find as well.

Rising Sun pub provides launch/recover audience and a good pint as well.

Just nip across Southampton Water to Calshot.

Hope to make it if we get hydraulics sorted out this week . . .

Mike, Matt's Mate on the Jetski and bedajim

will be great to have you along, jet skis are very welcome as are hard boats and any other boat for that matter, we had some jetskis with us at pwllheli and someone carried fuel for them to top up so that may be a consideration.

basically any boat as long as they can keep up with the pace that is the main thing, ie no sailing boats especially with skippers called Skipper_Stu , however planing sailing boats would be interesting.

as for the noise a jet ski may make, i think it may be drowned out by the noise of our engines so that wont be an issue

i think we are at 24 boats now, will be quite a sight i am sure and a heck of a lot of fun

Mike and Colin....thanks for the info on weather and warash

No longer the case. You will be charged for using the slip at Warsash now - about 6!

Is that new this season? I launched there a few weeks ago and we didn't see any notices. Guess they want everyone to pay for the nice new pontoon that you're not allowed to use!

I recently paid around 90 for harbour dues to the Hamble Harbour Master. Use of the slip is free, however, you have to pay harbour dues if you "touch the side". I've not yet mastered launching or recovering without "touching the side". Still, 90, is not too bad considering that some private slipways cost 25 per go.
