Nice slip at Bucklers Hard on the Beaulieu river, but a 45 min trudge downriver at 6kt/8kt? before you get to the Solent. Good facilities - shower block, boatyard services, large car park, etc. and a decent pub/restaurant around the corner

Hi Pete7 you can launch at low tide i have done it several times this year you just need to keep close to the bolders on the left, the other slip is no longer used by the public. There seems to be a growing interest in diving from there if the amount of dive boats is anything to go by.

Launching sites

Last year was my first launching year so I was quite concerned so I did like you and asked the good people of ribnet

The first site I used was hamble point, great but expensive. To be honest the number one advantage was that there was no onlookers so I coudl spend and age gettng it right (or as right as I could)

I then used the slipway at Swanage (not the town one, but the one by the lifeboat).

Very wide, you can park your trailer and the car park is next door.

It also have an attendant during the day.

Swanage gives you plenty of fun going to the left.... towards poole...

To the right is quite wavey water but again well worth a play
