Solent Suggestions

Will be taking the new Ribcraft out from Bucker's Hard on Sunday and Monday. Would welcome suggestions of places to visit. Crew includes kids and dogs. Kids and dogs like beaches (sandy ones preferably) and adults like eating and drinking....

Wootton Creek (high tide) there is a pub at the top near the bridge.

West Cowes or further up the medina is the folly inn. It's closing soon for refurbishment.

Newtown Creek (high tide) there is a track at the top which leads up to a nice pub, a long walk but nice for the dog.

Yarmouth, try the nachos at the wheatsheaf

Lymington but will be quite busy though?

Needles and Alum bay are a must see if you have never been.

I agree all of the above but the tides are wrong this weekend for lunch at either Wootton or Newtown Creek. Depending on how far you want to go, Studland Bay over at Poole covers all the bases: one of the best sandy beaches in the country and a nice pub 100m back from the beach.

Just inside Chichester Harbour, right hand side, West Wittering Beach. Nice trip out.

Thanks Chaps - great info.

Maybe Medina or Priory Bay on the Sunday.

If all goes well I quite fancy venturing out of the Solent to Studland Bay on Monday. I'll have a look at the chart, where should I aim for in Studland bay?

At the southern end of the beach where it narrows and starts to turn to rocks, there's a shack cafe next to which is a short path to the road where you turn right up the hill to the Bankes Arms. You will either need a tender or be prepared to wade ashore from a little distance out since the bottom (mostly sand) shelves very gradually. There are some visitors buoys offshore that can be used or anchor up. Also take care whether the tide is rising or falling since you could otherwise be there longer than you plan!

Tides are not helpful this weekend, but weather looks good for a change

I am thinking of launching at Yarmouth on Sunday and going around to the needles for a picnic lunch with wife and kids. Happy to raft up with anyone else whilst there
