Wootton Creek -IOW near Ryde

Has anyone stopped off at Wootten Creek before? I see there is a Pub near the Creeks entrance. Can you tie up there? Can you get very far up the Creek?

Dave

Wootton Creek is very tidal and you will not be able to get to the bridge where the pub is located on a low tide. You will be able to tie up their but not sure if you will get charged.

If you do go then also beware of the car ferry which operates out of their.

There is a sailing club with a pontoon a little further on from the car ferry, they charge. But if you assist a Yacht trying to dis-enbark crew and sails as I did once, they will let you tie up for gratis. They also serve good food there and well worth a Sunday lunch.

I can second Hightower's responce, the food in the sailing club is excellent and its members are very friendly. Although I visited as a sailor and not as a rib-hooligan!

Wootton creek

The Royal Victoria Yacht Club At the mouth of Wootton creek is
not a public landing stage or a Pub
Gusts have to be singed in by a member
unlese a member another R Y A affiliated club.
As for the tides you should have water for three or four hours
plenty of time fore lunch at the sloop

Unless Royal Victoria has changed a lot in the last 3 months i would have said it was one of the nicest clubs in the Solent.

I have rocked up there in both the rib and sailing boat and been welcomed very warmly. Food is good, beer is wet and people are very friendly.

I agree,very sociable with showers and toilets,I have always had to offer to pay at the club bar,I am a member of an RYA affiliated club but have never been signed in.The pub at the top of the access road on the left is quite good also.
There is a nice walk opposite the pub to the abbey which has a coffee shop and interesting livestock.

Well I've turned up on 3 occasions (as it's my local) and have always been welcomed and never signed in. Did have to pay for landing once, but I ate a meal there on a Sunday with my crew, so was there a while......And didn't even book!

If they refused me and asked me to leave then on to pastures new I guess.

Stop being GRUMPY, Grumpy (unless your the club steward)
