Anyone cruised in Chichester Harbour before

Hi all

I'm planning a trip down to Chicjester Harbour next weekend with a mate and some fishing rods. I have spoken to the harbour office and they say there is no chareg for inflatables on any of the slipways there, just the 3.50 per day harbour dues which sounds fair enough.

Anyone got any favourite spots, hints tips etc for round ther? I will be venturing out onto the sea if the wind is good.

Thanks

MT

The easiest slip is at Itchenor:

Accessible at all states of the tide. Most (all?) the other slips are limited to about 2 hours either side of high tide, except for the expensive one in Northney Marina. The only issue with Itchenor is that the road down to it can get very clogged with holiday makers.

There is a bit of info about angling in the harbour here:

From Itchenor, you can head down to to Bosham or Emsworth - there is a visitor pontoon at Emsworth and a quay at Bosham - you need to tie up at the nearest end of the quay at Bosham to avoid charges.

There is a chart of the harbour here:

If heading out of the harbour, be aware that conditions across Chichester bar can be very nasty.

Cheers

Chris

Thanks for the heads up mate. I came to the same conclusion about Itchenor as I don't fancy wading through mud to get the boat out.

I will keep a keen eye on the weather for the bay though!

Good advice.
