Nice places to anchor

Had a lovely day at Studland Bay yesterday. I had not done the old anchor by a beach and go ashore malarky before. Although the hundred or so other boats in the bay had the idea before me!

Made me think that forum users must know other nice beaches to anchor in. Would anyone care to suggest where I should go next?

Someone told me that on the stretch of coast that contains Lulworth Cove you can find beaches that are only accessable by boat - anyone ever tried them?

Peter.

You mean like this, without the 100 other boats?

Funny that Pete, I did my first ever trip to a beach on Sunday, moored off shore with the anchor, and yes it was Studland Bay as well.

Coming from Poole Harbour what got me annoyed as we went out to Studland was the ignorant other big boaters (those big sunseekers) who didnt seem to give a damn that we were a 4m Rib, and zoomed very close to us at top speed, still it was fun getting totally wet, before we even went into the sea

Priory Bay

We did our first ever anchor-off-a-beach-and-paddle-ashore-with-bbq on Sunday as well. We went to (on the Jackeens recommendation) Priory Bay and it was great. We especially like the strategically placed sand bar between the beach and the sea which means that only the ribbers can get in really close (sorts out the Sunseeker issue).

We used low tide to clean its bottom (the boat’s that is) and also had the fortune to meet a fellow RIBnetter (Hi Robin – great to meet you!!).

So all in all – mega success, to be repeated this weekend! Anyone interested?

Kathy and Izzy

Funny that, I went and bought a RIB in Swanage on sunday too-and was sat watching Studland bay thinking 'jammy buggers-wish this thing had an engine...'

you're too right about the sunseekers too... I hate them. 3 weeks ago had one almost hit us on the way out of Poole harbour. His wake came into the cockpit of my old microplus he was so damn close while crowding past at 20 knots overtaking us on the way past the chain ferry. I do wish I'd had a paintball gun...

Is that Priory Bay on the IOW between Bembridge & Seaview?

I notice that the Hotel website claims a "private beach" is that the one you went to? Am I right to assume that standard rules apply & that all land up to the HW Mark is public.

I wouldn't want some stroppy hotel manager telling me to go away in less than polite language.

Odds are he would probably be a little hoarse once he got to you, after speaking to the other hundred or so people that are usually on that beach at the weekend!
