Riverside Park is right next door to Mercury Yacht Harbour on the Hamble. The campsite facilities are basic, its mainly aimed at statics and lodges, but the marina is excellent .

Good concrete slip at Mercury useable about hw +/- 4

Marina berths will be available and there is a special rate for up to 5.9m

Pub / restaurant at the marina and Hamble village about a mile walk

Can't comment on the camp site as not used it - but appears to get busy in the summer so must be ok!

How about Calshot, you can park caravan overnight and sail direct off the beach and also a slipway for all tides. Very quick access to all local beaches at Lepe and also The New Forest on your doorstep

Isle of Wight, Whitecliff Bay as example - see my video on the 'Video Camera' thread, you could spend a fortnight exploring the coast and still not see it all!!!

I went camping down Witterings area. That was good, nice beaches and you can launch the boat from a few different locations. I went for itchenor, nice and wide slipway.

Hurst View is just outside Lymington (5 mins drive to slipway) or there are loads of campsites (complete with ponies) in Brockenhurst - 15 mins from Lymington. You are then in the nicest bit of the Solent (in my opinion!)
