There are loads of good places. Here are some of our favourites:

Ryde - has a marina but dries. Timboli will be able to tell you when it's accessible.

Cowes - Town Quay but can get very busy in summer.

River Medina - Folly Inn has its own pontoon but again, busy in summer.

Yarmouth - tie up at along Town Wall. Really friendly berthing master.

Ventnor - you'll probably get a ride to shore from the Harbourmaster (Dan) or the local fisherman's son in his SIB (he's about 10 years old!!). The tying-up pontoon is a bit rickety and you need to follow the channel markers in very carefully. I'd advise you to go by car at low tide and have a good luck at the entrance and the harbour as it's quite a new harbour and doesn't appear on some charts. It's also of variable depth.

If you are launching in Langstone, you could always go into Chichester Harbour round the back under the bridge if the tide is right and go to Itchenor (pub), Sparkes Marina (Marinas pub) Bosham (high tide).
Or go across to Bembridge where you can get good lunch

You'll be wasted if you get around all these pub visit sugestions!!!!

Heres another

The Jolly Salior Pub- Ashlett Creek, this is west side of Southampton water, only accessable 1 to 2 hours either side of HW. and loos as if your going in amonst Fawliy Power Station - trickyish enterance, but once your in it is surprisinly pleasent.

Easyer still is all the way up the Hamble River to Jolly Sailor Pub at Burseldon (Not at LW Springs) Pontoon outside Pub - what could be simpler!!!

Have a nice pint!
