Solent

I wanted to get myself in the solent over the next week or so, does anyone know the best places to trailer launch in the Portsmouth or Southampton area?

Thanks.

What size boat have you got? I have used the slip by swac a couple of time good slip, no go at low tide though and limited trailer parking, if it's a smaller rib then swanick by the marina there is a gravel slip, again limited parking!

I've got a 5m Sib with a 40. I'll be travelling with kids and the wife and would like to make the day fun and straightforward, so parking would be useful. I've done a lot of sailing in and out of Portsmouth, so was hoping someone had experience from there. I live in London/Essex so don't know the other surrounding areas.

Thanks.

Would be very interested in this too.

I know many RIBnetters use this area but a beginners guide to where to launch, visit, points of interest, things to be wary of, do's/dont's etc would be welcome.

I only really know the Sussex coast (Dover - Brighton) and would be in the old Aerotec with 15 hp so need to bear in mind it's not a 150HP 6.5m RIB...

Any 3-4m SIBbers use this area?

Launching portsmouth/southampton

You could launch swanwick or Warsash nect to the harbour master. Goood easy launching at most tide states but better parking at warsash. You can leave your trailer stood end up next to the slip on the sea wall.

Hi,

The "next week or so" is a bit vague.

The Camber slip in Portsmouth is an ideal location. Very good concrete slipway (which is cleaned every month) and just 2.50 to launch. However, avoid it until the end of July.

After the ACWS event on the 23-27 July. There will be public parking and a trailer park. Before then may be a bit iffy!

So I guess it depends on when you want to go.

Regards

Steve

Thanks Steve.
Wanted to get out several times over the summers weeks both in July and later but thanks for the heads up on that event.

That's very cheap launching and if there is parking think I shall give that a go in August.

Cheers

+1 for Warsash at least until Camber is on line again.

There's a good concrete slip at Mercury Marina on the Hamble. There is a charge to use it.
Big car park and a pub on site.
Obviously moorings - if you are making a weekend of it and don't want to haul out each day.
Campsite adjacent (they also have log cabins).
