Ryde IoW

Hi
We are planning to pop across to the island tomorrow (thunderstorms permitting!) to meet some friends for lunch. We've never been to Ryde before but looking at the almanac is appears that the marina has visitors berths and I assume the channel is okay even at low tide.
Any tips for the first time visitor?
Cheers
Neil

not so, there's a bar across the marina and you can only get to it a couple of hours either side of hw

Biffers correct, I would arrive 2hrs before Hw and ask the harbour master there how long you can stay for, because I've stayed there for up to 3 hrs after HW before, but I haven't a clue how marginal it is. I remember a very prominent RIBnet member several years ago using his prop to dredge the channel deeper

Thanks Both
Really helpful. I think we'll go for plan b tomorrow (the folly) as the tides look completely wrong for Ryde.
Cheers
Neil

I heard people say 'Don't go to Ryde on an outgoing tide'
