Hi
Last time at Calshot we ventured up The River Medina as far as Newport. We didnt have time to stop but we are down again next weekend and should have a little more time to spare. There were public moorings actually next to the car park of what seemed to be some sort of public transport museum. Are these moorings safe, do they dry out at low tide and how far is it to the actual town? There seemed to be a riverside pub opposite the moorings, is it any good? I think the charges were minimal but couldnt see where to pay?
Thanks in anticipation
Martyn

Newport harbour dries,as for how safe,a mate of mine was woken on his yacht by some of the local lowlife trying to nick his tenders outboard in the middle of the night.
Apart from that,I have heard of no problems and members of the local sailing club always seem to be up there.
I shall be at the Folly Inn with my sister and her boyfriend next saturday evening if weather permits and will probably be moored there from around 4pm onwards(on a wafi boat),PM me if you will be there and want to say hi.

Bargemans rest on quay is ok failing that the town is only two mins away
plenty to chose from eaters and drinkers and well worth the walk

All dries out up there. Saturday evenings can bring out some of the natives who enjoy the delights of cider/alchopops under the road bridge. Better off at the Folly. Food is OK and there is a pontoon. Peace and quiet - stick to Newtown Creek (the Sun inn is only a stroll a way and food used to be very good there).


p.s. IW, do we say USOA!!

Thanks folks
Very informative as usual.
Timboli - Saturday might be a goer if the tides are right? My plan is to go up to Newport and have a look round during the day/afternoon and then call in at The Folly on the way back(anyone else up for it?). If the tides are wrong we will miss out the Newport bit and punt around the IOW Coastline! Obviously it will be weather dependent too but forecast looks good atm. We are camping at Calshot so if we are late back we can always moor the boat and recover it in the morning. I have pm'd you my mobile number.
