Using Auto route I've also managed to find an Esso Garage at:-

Victoria Street
Ventnor
PO38 1
United Kingdom

Can anyone give me the location of the new harbour. ie what street is it at the end of. Auto route doesn't show the harbour.

Many thanks.

Ventnor Esplanade shoud show it up if not type in Spyglass Inn its at the other end of the Esplanade or you could try Winter Gardens Cascades Hill. Its a fair trudge up the hill and then about 10 mins to the garage just go up the cascades turn right and then straight on its on a bend in the road . I bet it will be more fun going down hill with all that fuel.

Tim

Is the harbour next to the Spyglass Inn or further East along the Esplanade near Mill Bay?

Regards Nick R.

One thing about ventnor. It is not a harbour like you will be use to ie no pontoons. You will have to catch one of the fisherman to give you a ride ashore.

Simon,

Cheers for that bit of info. If push comes to shove we drop as many off as possible near to dry land then just one person swims in from the anchored boats. Thats when it helps to have your dry suit full of air. Provides tons of buoyancy.

It also helps to have a 16 year old along with lots to prove.

Nick,

I know everything there is to know about Yarmouth, nowt about Ventnor (its over the "other side" )

Anyway. Mill road garage is the one. Its not the cheapest but cheaper than the quay. The quay is about 98p a litre (last summer) and the garage is maybe 85p if you're lucky. So on a 25 litre can you'll save just over 3 quid. However, you might get stung for harbour dues if you tie up and walk to get fuel, you won't have to pay harbour dues if you fuel up at the berth and then leave.

The garage is, as said before a 5 (more like 3 with lanky legs like me) minute walk. This is longer than it sounds carrying a full tank though! if you moor on the quay, walk over the nearby round about and towards the carpark. The road bends round to the left and then take the first right by the school. Walk up that road and the garage is at the end.

Opening times. from memory I think they are open sat am but closed sat pm and sun. I think they are open during the week. Best give em a ring.

Another thing, there is an outboard repair bloke at the garage which could be useful for someone to know.

Hope that helps Nick!

Cheers

Tim
