just here - Eastney Beach, Eastney


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
General information:

Long: -1.029516
Lat: 50.792177

Country: Unknown
Region: South East inc the Solent




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Slipway information:


Ramp Description: Wide concrete ramp, busy in the summer, you may have to queue to launch and recover. At low tide the sand adjacent to the ramp is firm and it is possible to recover from the beach when the ramp is busy. This slip is shared with the Southsea Sea Angling Club who try to keep the slip clear of shingle with their tractor. This slip is useable at almost all states if tide, but do not go off the end of the slip at very low spring tides in anything other that a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Countless cars caught out here and the club will to do what ever possible try to assist with our fixed winch, tractor, or 4x4 dumper trucks to help pull cars out. Eastney Cruising Association run the two adjacent slipways. The one that launches into the fast moving part of Langstone harbour (often referred to as THE RUN) adjacent to the public slipway, is private and for the use of ECA members only. The one that launches into the part of Langstone Harbour know as 'Eastney Lake' is run by the ECA and does have public access but is tidal and only really useable 1-2 hours either side of high tide. The slips in the main channel are very exposed to south or north winds.
Directions: From A3M follow on west to A27, take the next slip and turn left at roundabout, follow A2030 Eastern Road around the Harbour after which it becomes Velder Rd. At mini roundabout turn left on A288, at 2nd set of lights turn left into Bransbury Rd, follow road until road bears sharp right, turn left but take right hand fork along Fort Cumberland Road. Keep the Fort on your right. On your left you will see a marina. There is a small turning on the right that takes you through the sand dunes to the launch. The turning is just before the Eastney Cruising club.
Ramp Type: Concrete
Upper Area: Shingle
Lower Area: Sand
Suitability: Large trailer needs a car
Ramp Length: All of tidal range
Facilities: Good car parking. Does get busy. Usually there is a food stand. Langstone Marina 200 yards. Slipway is usually only manned at the weekend.
Charges: Jet ski: 10.00/day, 71.25/year. Boat: 8.40/day, 59.44/year.
Cruising Area: Solent and Langstone Harbour
Navigational Hazards: Very strong currents in the harbour entrance when the tide is running. Popular with jet skis, lots of high speed traffic. There is a speed limit of 10 knots in the harbour and there are restrictions on certain activities. There is access to Chichester Harbour under the Hayling road bridge for vessels of low air draught at certain states of the tide.
Jetski Friendly: Yes

Still ok, cos that way we can still do half a job, it will look acceptable in the dark, plus we all get free drinks from you, so result actually.
