Chichester Harbour, where to go ???

Hello All

Got the family coming down this weekend and was looking to show off the new toy (5.5m Ballistic) unfortunately the weather is absolutely pants so we were thinking of just launching at Itchenor then just gently cruising around the harbour.

It is low tide at 1300 so I know that most of the harbour will not be accessible but we were wondering if there was anywhere we could take the family for lunch maybe and not scare them too much as the going outside the harbour will be a little too hard core tomorrow

Thanks for your comments

There is not a lot of choice at low tide.
I would go for a picnic at East Head, if I were you.
Also, depending on the age of the family, you could try going up Emsworth channel to see if you can see any seals.
Sunday looks a lot better for a spin outside.

Cheers mark

We have a 2 year old amongst us and the boat will have 6 on board so we can only really go somewhere gently. Ive never really been up to Emsworth that could work if its not too rough i suppose.

Can we go for lunch at Hayling Yacht club and do we need to be members

HISC is a private members club and therefore technically you would need to be accompanied on the premises...they do good meals though. Also they maybe a bit iffy tieing up on their jetty.
One word of caution in Chichester Harbour, keep to the speed limit or the Harbourmaster will have you.....1000 fines are not uncommon

You are wlcome to have lunch at the club and you should be ok on the pontoon whilst doing so , but the beach has changed a lot and it dries out a long way down now so you may stay longer than u want!
