Sparkes Marina - Hayling

Sparkes do dry boat sailing (no slip) for about 300 per metre April to October. Extra fee for winter storage. Unlimited launches but you do need 4 lifting eyes fitted to you rib (100-200ish).

All the usual marina services and it's in the water when you get there

It's not cheap but the more you use it the better it becomes on a /launch basis and you keep the hull clean.

Major downside is the hour it can take to get off Hayling on a summer's evening or bank holiday.

I've done it for last three years but thinking of moving to Northeney this year to avoid the evening traffic. Heard some stories about the steepness/slipperyness of the slipway there so any thoughts appreciated.

northney is just about to have a new slip way built,still where the excisting one is,but made a little less steep and will have a pontoon next to it(same style as the american slips),so will be very easy to launch if your on your own

I use Northney Slip. Its OK, the main thing with it is that there is a bend near the top apart from that its OK no more slippy that any others, it is steep but that means it does not need to go too far in the water.

I kept a boat at Northney for a couple of seasons, and I really like the slip there. It is steep, but that's not a bad thing if your tow car os up to it (a FWD saloon might struggle a bit though).

It's a bit slippy at low water, but at least it's usable at all tides. You can easily avoid the slippery bit by using a rope between the car and the trailer.

The main drawback is that it's about 40 minutes to the sea, and the Chichester Harbour patrols tend to be a bit overzealous for my liking!

Notheney

Thanks John.

What I might do is try a couple of pre-season launches there before making my mind up. In the meantime I'll keep looking for other venues within striking distance of the end of the A3(M).
