Not too sure what your all on about. But just got back from sailing a boring raggy in Scotland and want to register my interest for the 28/29 October. My Engine has to go in on Monday for some work but that should be finished by the end of the week. Then I'll be wanting some sea time. Can some one post an itinery ?

Setting the pace here.

I would prefer the Saturday 28th October.

Anyone got any long term forecasts for that weekend ?

And have we got a route ?

Okay,

Got my boat back, nothing wrong with it, just me worrying. So now I'm ready to go.

Because I haven't been to either Brighton or Poole would anyone like to take the lead on this.

If not I can make a plan for Littlehampton, although that is not as long a trip as Brighton and the facilities in the town are not as good as Yarmouth, although the moorings are excellent. Thats my own personal knowledge anyway. Must admit I fancy a trip to Poole or Weymouth as well.

I'm going to refuel the boat this week and await any feedback !

I vote poole, based on the fact I won't make it to Brighton! Seriously, Poole is such an amazing place, I would love to go there in a RIB. Been there so much with the rents in their rag and stick boat. I guess yarmouth would make a good break stop on the way for those coming from soton/pompy.

Poole's pretty good. The harbour will be almost empty by then too if you fancy doing a line-up. There's pubs and eateries of various descriptions within 100 yards of the quay and should be fuel on the barge if it's still there(at extortionate prices) and at Salterns (also extortionate). Joe's Cafe on Studland beach should be open too. Don't know if the Shell Bay Seafood Restaraunt will still be open.

It's probably worth staying a bit offshore on the way down from the island if there's anything over f4 and the tide's running-Christchurch ledge can get rather unpleasant. After that it's just beach-hugging to the entrance-or pick up the end of the Training Bank at the beacon or the bar buoy and follow the main channel all the way in to the quay.
Don't go in between the channel buoys near the beach and the bar buoy when coming from the Solent-Hook Sands are not nice. (thats erring on the side of caution -you'll probably be able to see breaking waves over the sands) Google earth the harbour and you can see all the places to avoid.

Low tide in Poole is around 10.00 GMT that day (Low is approx the same as Dover-(High is an odd double high) so don't deviate to port from the main channel on the way in inside the harbour if you're arriving around this time-there's a sandbar there which isn't always obvious.

Oh, and don't cross the harbour entrance in front of the chain ferry unless you can give it a wide berth-the chains are taught and not far under the surface.
