31st Aug Portland local time

8:45 hlow tide( 0.8 m )15:25 hhigh tide( 1.4 m )21:35 hlow tide( 0.8 m )23:45 hhigh tide( 1.0 m )


The tidal coefficient will be 47, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small.

small ribs and sibs will be able to launch from 10.30 if we help each other.
recovery will be fine 17/1800 hrs

RIBase
We would love to do this
1- Is Castletown the car park next to the customs building?
2- Will it be possible to blow up my sib next to the car and wheel it accross to the beach next to the car park? (without going out into the road)
3- how much is the parking?
4- how much is launching? ( A Sib ) no trailer.
5- Is this one too many questions?

I have recently checked out the little beach/carpark next to "Fleet Marine" on the causeway that is usually full of windsurfers, seems like a good little spot for sibbers.,bit shallow but should be ok.

Pete.

Pete,

Free launching, though technically you should get a harbour permit. Car park is about 6 quid a day but you can park for free on the waste ground round by the castle. Please don't park on the road in Castletown itself as residents struggle to park. You can usually park briefly by the slipway while you inflate your boat if you are sensible about it.

Cheers
Phil

Thats great!

I will try and check the place out before the 31st, get an idea of the situation.

I have just purchased the Portland harbour license for the year and also the Poole one as well.

We will not be in any hurry getting to Lulworth cove as being fairly new to boats I don't have the confidence of some here.
Done a couple of long trips in a big rib ( Southampton to Redbay Northern Ireland ) but not as captain
Pete.

make no mistake its a long run in a sib ,on the return leg we were forced into a virtual trolling speed ,any sibs thinking of this trip forget about flares etc you`ll deffo need a bail and a pair of goggles i`ve just got some cheap demisting ski goggles (clear) and a cut out piece of milk carton for a bail

xs400 was a complete star who kept my morale high and even decided to bounce on my wake just so i could use trevors bail to empty the sib out, the ribs tend to play around us sibs laughing at how slow we are lol

golden rule is your as fast as the slowest boat unless your name is graham who kindly transported my wifey and daughter at around 48 knots

wouldn`t miss it for the world

Ribs?

Is this open to 5.6m ribs? it is quite a long drive for me, but if I can persuade my wife to come along, I might be interested. Or would I have to wait for the tide too long to launch at Portland?

Hi, your more than welcome to join.
The slip at Castletown may be a bit tricky at 10.30, (you know your boat best, there will be people there willing to help, the water will probably not be up to the slip, once off the slip, it is a shallow gradient and has larger stones under the water, so the sea bed is uneven, the smaller ribs 4m to 4.5m detach the trailer and push the boat out and pull the trailer back in)

so you may prefer to launch down the road

Key Facilities at WPNSA - Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy I'm not sure of the cost but you don't need to worry about tide, and I believe the cost includes car park.

You can launch at Weymouth Town slip, its nice and there is fresh water, though can get busy and you do have to separate the car and trailer and park the car in the multi story opposite.

BUMP!
just to let every one know we have booked pebble bank going thurs-mon with an intention of launching sat

weather is looking ok too

not heard a peep out of mike (xs400) so i`m assuming he`s good to go

again we are taking our families but haven`t been able to secure a larger rib for them, so the plan is to launch at portland then mooch over to lulworth whilst the wifeys and kids drive to lulworth once we get there we shall transport the families on the sib to the boats . we will then cruise around to durdle door and act like utter teenagers again ..followed off by a hearty meal in teh pub

once again this has the makings of a fantastic day out ,the more the merrier sib or rib

Yup.....I'm in.


Didn't wanna speak too soon, but the weather looks good and rib is all ready!!

Booked campsite for Fri night, unfortunately have to be back Sun AM so prob won't stay Sat night.

Hopefully launching at Castletown won't be a problem for me (4.5m rib), may need a little assistance? If not, I'll launch down the road at the sailing club, and meet up.

I've got some contact details for Bingo, I'll use him for point of contact Fri afternoon.

If anyone needs help to launch, we live directly opposite the slipway. We'll probably stick our boat in early and anchor it up off the beach so will be hanging around :-)
