But for those not familiar with the area it's probably worth mentioning that Ryde is tidal. Access is something like HW+/-2 hours, maybe a little more but not much.

Same for Bembridge, which has a sand bar at the harbour entrance out near st Helen's fort, and needs care around low water, then follow the buoyed channel in. Plenty of info on the harbour's website and of course a chart

Food at the pilot boat inn is good

As long as you stick to the channel, on neaps you are ok to go to the folly in smaller boats any stage of tide (done it at low water in the fletcher). Ryde - no way- it's super tidal and John is spot on with his warning. The sand dries for maybe half a mile or more out - get stuck on that and you are going nowhere til next high water!

we will be heading out on the rising tide from langstone... so should be ok when we get over (pausing for a little fishing) may well have a picnic on the beach, have navionocs gold on board so should be ok for drying out bits.
thanks as always for advice.

It's always worth talking to the harbour master or marina when you turn up and they ask for their payment. Ask them how long you can stay for and any other information you need.

Normally you can get mackerel off No Man's Land Fort, but not seemingly as bountiful this year (or I have duff feathers!)

Been very hit and miss this year. Look for birds working the surface or try away from the other boats.

I found no mans land pretty bad last year too, odd because the year before it was absolutely crazy the amount of mackers that leapt on literally anything shiny.
