Yep. Very exposed and a few boats went missing from there. Not used it for a few years now though.

Exposed as in for boat launch or the site itself . If site is okay could just stay there but launch and moor from Warsash

Head for North Wales instead and join the Round Anglesey for Macmillan cruise at Easter weekend. Loads of fellow nobburs taking part and should be a good craic - evening 'do' in Caernarfon on the Saturday!

Exposed for boat launch is what I meant.

If it was just me and donna I would be tempted but we are bringing sponging freeloading student daughters . We did our first communal run on the Isle of Wight nacho which we really enjoyed but I only have a two seater 4.8 and I am not sure the girls would fancy hanging on to the tubes for that distance !!!

No worries. I won't labour the point but not everyone will be going round, including us possibly, due to the Leader of the Opposition being on board, so a good number will just do the run from Caernarfon to Conway, fish & chips on the quayside and back to Caernarfon.

My sponging, freeloading ex-student kids are all well past uni days and nothing changes, I can assure you...

That's what dads are for, apparently.

I thought it would get easier when they didn't need booster seats and could do their own seat belts up .. What little I knew .
What are folks doing for digs and are most staying the whole weekend ?

Used to live a couple of miles inland but not been down where for ages so my info maybe out of date.
I think the road from Hook village has been Tarmac surfaced now (it used to be a gravel road, slow progress and very bumpy in places not ideal for towing backwards and forwards to Warsash). Might be worth asking the site about the road condition & mooring facilities. It is exposed for launching, & pretty sure the slip is tidal. The moorings used to be tidal swinging moorings and would require you to swim out or use a tender at high tide or walk wade out to boat at lower tides.
