To all those intending to Camp:
Received the literature from Ship and Anchor:
Adults £5.00 per night
Children 2.60 per night
Trailers £3.50 per night
Launching £12.50(for campers)

Launching can take place between 9am-5.30pm daily and is subject to a tidal restriction of LW+2 hours - they even sent a tide table.
They have also enclosed an ariel photo and it looks as though the only moorings are to a pontoons with a walkway to the bank.

They are willing to reserve a space for our group subject to a £10.00 deposit and numbers and units etc.

I am willing to arrange camping provided I know all those intending to camp by the end of March so please let me know as soon as possible?

new update - so far 15 ribs

Guys

Just would like to take this opportunity and welcome new member
Tony Hancock. Tony has a superb XS550 with 90 Mercury Optimax and is based at the Littlehampton Marina


New update as follows:

The Jackeens - "Zebedee"
Roy Smith - (possibly - awaiting rib)
Louise & Richard - "Blue Ice"
Martin & Anto - "Remedy"
DJL - "Bumblebee"
Richard - "Nautibouy"
Simmons0 (David & Harry) - "Tombouy"
Janet & Bill - "Juno"
Scurvy_Crew & Ribald - "Pendragon"

Welcoming party
Tony Hancock & family - no name

Phil & I went down to the S & A on Saturday and even met the lady owner who was aware of our cruise. Wasn't wearing my drysuit but she somehow guessed who were by asking us- "Are you ribsters?"

Littlehampton Marina is aware of our cruise and once we have the final numbers of participating ribs we can sort mooring space.
I will at a later date advise the cost of mooring at LAmpton marina


Photos of the facilities at the S & A will be posted shortly

Hi Andrew
I am sure Jono will prepare you well.
I am also sure you will enjoy the cruise . Where do you plan to launch cos if in the Solent area suggest you get in touch with other participants and join the armada.

as for the B & B look up my earlier posts and see the tel numbers of some
B & Bs in LAmpton and make a reservation.

Ship & Anchor

Guys

These photos will give the campers a good idea of the facilities at the Ship & Anchor.

The photos were taken at HW

Launch and recovery like at the LAmpton marina is subject to the tides

The S & A is a very nice pub open all day and serving a good selection of food

Thanks for all the trouble you are taking for us campers.
Couple of questions:
1. How long does it take to get from S&A to Littlehampton and the meeting place?
2. Are there overnight moorings at S&A for the Saturday Night?

For those intending to stay at The Ship and Anchor:

I have had a few confirmations already regarding camping-the cut off date will be 31st March. Please let me know number of adults/children, type of unit ie tent/camper etc. Time/date of arrival/depature
Thanks
Martyn

Hv done the S & A - LAmpton several times but can't give you exact timing, a quick guess say 15/20 minutes
You will be restricted to 6 knots and anything above that is bad news
The harbour Master is very strict and as you can see from the attached photo even the guys in the orange rib had to dig deep down to satisfy the man in question . The chap in the rib just ahead managed to get away with a ticking off

Can we nominate you Top Dog of the campers and all relevant info in respect of the camping can be sent directly to you. Phil & I would just need to know who is where

Just realised I have not given the information asked for.

1 dome tent

2 adult and 2 children

We will arrive on the Friday and stay Friday and Saturday night.

If there are no moorings available we will launch a Littlehampton Marina with everyone else.

Of course if there are moorings then we will launch at Ship & Anchor.

Ok, got it all up and running now !!!

Andre and I had some thoughts on a bit of a program for the weekend.

We will be launching at Littlehampton Marina about 08:30 on the Saturday morning after large mugs of tea and bacon sarnies at the cafe!!!

High tise that morning is at about 11:30 so, giving peeps enough time to launch and travel over towards Littlehampton, we thought that a meeting at Boulder Bouy off Selsey at 11:00.

Once we are all together, a rapid trip back to Littlehampton and a leisurely cruise up the river to Arundel (at no more than 6 knots!!) where we will find a suitable place to tie up and have a picnic. Please remember to bring suitable amounts of sarnies and bottles !!!

By the time we have lunched the tide will be well on the way down to somewhere about 14:30 it will be time to return to Littlehampton to tie up and wait for the water to rise again. This will give people the time needed to pitch tents, book into B & B's etc.

Anyone out there fancy an evening blat that night before we retire to the pub? Might be an idea.

Dinner that night will be at the Arun View. I will need numbers for this as far in advance as possible so that I can let Dave in the pub know as he will have to reserve tables for us all. Large amounts of drink will surely follow !!

Sunday morning we thought it would be nice to have a trip down to Brighton Marina and stay for early lunch. I think a 10:30 meet outside the harbour entrance would work then a 30 minute trip to Brighton. Short term fees for Brighton are only £6.00. Plenty of places to lunch there that cater for all tastes.

After lunch I'm guessing people will want to go there own ways so that they have adequate time to recover and clean down, salvage tents etc.

Below are a few more pics taken on sunday at the "make sure the beer is good enough for RIBnet" session that took place at the Ship and Anchor !!!

1. This is Andre standing next to the current launching crane !!!

2. I think this is the toilet, or maybe the shower !!!

3. This is the evening entertainment !!!

4. Oh what a fine looking pub !!!

Andre - no problem organising the camping side of things so anyone who wants to camp by all means post on here or pm me. If we get enough I will try and organise something for Friday Night? I will give you a detailed list at beginning of April.
Looks like a great programme by the way.

Peter - consider yourself added

Thanks Martyn

We may even decide to come down on Friday evening

By the way, 16 ribs so far is not bad and we still have 3 months to go.
I am confident we will have 20+

Velly interesting!

I would be very interested to find out more about the Ship & Anchor, as diving officer in our club Iím always looking for places the club can spend the odd weekend. So if anyone who knows the place can answer any of the following questions It would be much appreciated.

1. Obviously launching & recovery can only be done at certain times due to the tide, BUT can the river be navigated at all tide states (we would like to do multiple trips during the day)
2. Can the pontoons be used to leave the boat in the water over night, and if so how much do they charge.
3. Harbour fees, do these have to be paid separately or would it be included in any charge for launching/pontoon ?
4. Where is the nearest place to get air?


Thanks for any help
