Mooring at Warsash?

Hi guys, tomorrow is the Warsash Maritime academy open day and I plan on visiting. Living on the IOW I planned on taking the Red Jet to Southampton and then bus to Warsash. seeing as the weather won't be too bad I might be able to save a bit of money and hassle by Ribbing over.
Does anyone know of any pontoons where I could moor for a few hours and then walk ashore within walking distance from the MA?
Thanks,
Ralphy

Try the HM pontoon . They will charge for a short stay, but you can walk to the academy from there - about 10 mins along the coast path in front of the Rising Sun pub, past Warsash Sailng club.

Thanks, would it be marked as a pontoon for visitors?
As long as it has room and is fairly obvious to what it is, that sounds like where I need to go.

The HM office is a black and white round tower type building with a pontoon in front, there are usually blue and yellow cheetah cats moored there. Look in your almanac and on the chart.. You can call on ch 68.

No problem. There is an alternative a bit further up river at stone pier yard. I am not sure of the mooring arrange,nets any more but you might be lucky. The marina is operated by Marine Matters and there is a big board clearly nd acting where they are. But HM pontoon is your best bet.

What he said I think

HM pontoon big, easy, usually loads of space and an easy walk to Warsash MA

Hamble point is dead opposite, then hop on water taxi.?

The taxi can be contacted via Mobile 07827 157155 or VHF 77 “Hamble Taxi”.
The on demand ferry service and river taxi operates 0900 to 1800 in summer and to 2100 at weekends in June, July and August. Winter hours 0900 to 1600.

Can work out expensive, but its another option if HM doesn't work out.
