Ventnor 2nd/3rd October

Over the weekend of 2nd & 3rd, I am planning to move the Parker from Poole back to Southampton for the winter. Rather like the idea of going South of the Island and having lunch in the Spyglass. Does anyone have the tides for this weekend?

I may have some seats available for the one way trip if anyone would like a ride or just to join in with the cruise.

Regards
Steve

Please Sir! Please Sir!

I can answer this one!

My almanac shows 2 October as neap tides. Ventnorís standard port is Portsmouth where low tide (2.1m) is at 10.50 GMT (11.50 BST). At 11.00 MLWN at Ventnor is -0030 and -0.2m. It therefore seems that youíve got LW at Ventnor of 1.9m at 11.20 BST.

I donít know the drying height in the harbour but assuming -1m and allowing a draught of 1m for your boat, itís going to be touch and go (possibly touch and stay!) whether youíll get in at lunch time unless you have a late lunch (the Spyglass does food all day). Times are 1h 38 mins later on 3 October with similar depths.

The tidal stream around St Catherines changes from Easterly to Westerly around 5Ĺ hours after HW Portsmouth which is at 05.07 GMT on 2 Oct. Assuming a prevailing South Westerly wind, you should have wind with tide from around 11.30 BST for around six hours.

They usually have a deep water mooring/RIB park that you can tie off to and be ferried to shore in the harbour masters dingy. Access most parts of the tide, but you might get your feet wet

The reason for the reccy to Ventnor this weekend was the fact that I have to be in Ventnor, overnight, next Saturday 2nd.

We'll get there as soon as weather and tides allow on the 2nd.

We will leave the RIB on the pontoon overnight with the engine raised! -and leave late pm Sunday.


Access is HW + / - 3 hours according to the HM Saturday.

250kts - hope to see you there.

High tide Ventnor on 2 Oct is 18.04 BST, so access should be available from 15.00.

Not sure yet whether or not I can make it but, if so, will liaise with 250Kts and let you know.
