Priory Bay - yesterday (26th)

I launched from Langstone yesterday & went across to Priory Bay on the IoW with my missus & youngest boy. When we got there it was RIB city! Loads of RIBs anchored off.

Was anyone from here there?

We're going again today (sea state dependant) with the missus and both boys.

I drove past Priory Bay yesterday afternoon. Does that count?

If you saw a RIB after you got there then that'll do!

Lucky mucker! My kids love Priory Bay.

Which slip did you use in Langstone? I used to use Broadmarsh but worry about security leaving the car there.
Also the anti-pikey bollards were difficult if not impossible to get the trailer past.

We were there too, and it was really busy. Anchored today for a quick picnic lunch. One of our favourite spots to drop the hook at.

We were the 6m Ribeye anchored in the middle of 2 other Ribeyes! We went today too and it wasn't as warm (or as busy) but the boys loved it. The wind picked up on the way back and it was an "interesting" return journey!

I launch from Langstone marina by the Langstone hotel. It's 22 per launch/recover or 200 per year but is pretty much a full tidal range slip with jetty and is pretty safe to leave the trailer.

Yeah Wittering was packed as we came past it out of the Chichester channel both yesterday and today. We've got a week off soon so it may well be doing the quiet midweek trips!
