I guess it depends which way round the island you go as I expect you can nip up to Emsworth and go through Langstone Harbour in which case it's only a short hop over to Portsmouth.
We launch at Chichester and Itchenor, it can get quite bumpy going over Chichester Bar but then it's not far to Bembridge or the Forts.
Best thing is to go and give it a try.
