Launching near the Needles.

Does anyone know of a reasonably priced slipway on the mainland that is within a reasonable distance of the Needles.

Lymington springs to mind but I've heard some people say its expensive.

Christchurch Wick lane is Free, and about 9 miles from the needles from Mudeford. The mudeford slip is cheap I believe £5.50 but not friendly.

Brian,

Sorry should have said I'll be driving from Basingstoke. I'm not too sure if that makes any difference with the driving miles. I'll need to check that one out.

Thanks for the help anyway.

Nick.

Brian,

Nick.

Just seen the prices.

£10 to launch and £8.20 to park a car and trailer.

At that price might as well RIB it down from my usual launch place at Warsash.

But I'm still looking at a spin out next weekend so I'll shout you if I'm out.

Nick.
