Warsash is quite a good bet - useable at most states of tide except maybe LWS (and HWS when the water is nearly up to the road).

Free parking 200m away but when it's busy they do like you to split car and trailer and put the trailer up on the grass verge.

No charge for the slip, waiting pontoon available, but don't use the new fisherman's one. Quite easy to find as well.

Rising Sun pub provides launch/recover audience and a good pint as well.

Just nip across Southampton Water to Calshot.

Hope to make it if we get hydraulics sorted out this week . . .

Mike, Matt's Mate on the Jetski and bedajim

will be great to have you along, jet skis are very welcome as are hard boats and any other boat for that matter, we had some jetskis with us at pwllheli and someone carried fuel for them to top up so that may be a consideration.

basically any boat as long as they can keep up with the pace that is the main thing, ie no sailing boats especially with skippers called Skipper_Stu , however planing sailing boats would be interesting.

as for the noise a jet ski may make, i think it may be drowned out by the noise of our engines so that wont be an issue

i think we are at 24 boats now, will be quite a sight i am sure and a heck of a lot of fun

Mike and Colin....thanks for the info on weather and warash

Thanks for the email Hugh, just fitting out the Humber going really well. We can't wait to join you all next weekend. Thanks for allowing Pete to bring his Jet Ski too. See you next weekend. Thanks again.

No longer the case. You will be charged for using the slip at Warsash now - about £6!

Is that new this season? I launched there a few weeks ago and we didn't see any notices. Guess they want everyone to pay for the nice new pontoon that you're not allowed to use!

I recently paid around £90 for harbour dues to the Hamble Harbour Master. Use of the slip is free, however, you have to pay harbour dues if you "touch the side". I've not yet mastered launching or recovering without "touching the side". Still, £90, is not too bad considering that some private slipways cost £25 per go.

hi folks as hugh posted weather is looking good a slight concern with young ribbers about is the wind. Iknow 15mph is not serious but with good tides it might chop a bit . My other concern is all these big ribs about not seen to many others going with less than 6mtrs as we will be on a 4.8 ,we may need the self righting gear in good working order!!!!!!!!
or a rope and we could be a toy behind someone else (save fuel!!!!)
lets hope the wind stays on our side and sunshines all the way .
can`t wait for sunday see you all then

colin

we have a wide range of boats from just over 4 m to around 8 m which will be great.

We will try to adjust the pace to suit everyone and probably the best option will be to have regular re-groops so we keep reasonably together as typically everyone spreads out a bit.

the weather is looking good for the weekend so i think we are in for a good trip

as we now have a lot of boats we might be limited as to where we can reasonably stop in towns etc so i would propose the following

we can stop for a sandwich stop (perhaps consider taking sarnies and drink) at lunch time for some refreshments but our main food stop can be once we have been round the IOW on a beach for a BBQ. that way folks have plenty of time to cook etc and we can all moor up along the beach which should be fun in itself and then recount the trip as i am sure loads of folks will be keen to chat and exchange experiences. It will allow for the kiddies to have their fun on the beach and the bbq will be unhurried and folk will be free to leave when they wish. We stopped at Priory Bay last weekend so this could be a good venue also.

We use a dome bbq normally but for this trip i think we will go with disposable ones as they travel and store better on such a trip.

we will still stop at all the places of interest on the way.

Obvious i know but even if one person finds this useful then it is worth it....

Take time this week to make sure your boat is tip top mechanically, get those little jobs done etc so that hopefully we wont have any breakdowns or problems.

Familiarise yourself with the IOW and any hazzards, review the maps etc

Ensure you are fueled up and have sufficient Oil for the trip

if anyone falls in the water when on the move, the put your arm up and ensure boats surround the person in the water to stop anyone from hitting them, even inflate your life jacket so you are more visable.

remember when near someone in the water then switch off your engine

on our pwllheli cruise a guy fell out of his boat when getting his camera out at near full chat, he was lucky he just bruised his shoulder but it can happen so do take care and if there are another 20+ boats behind you it could turn into an incident

each skipper is responsible for their own boat and ensure you have your own charts and nav aids and ensure your own safe passage.

ensure you are fueled up ahead of time and allow plenty of time to slip and recover your boat as calshot will be very busy as mentioned previously, perhaps consider slipping at other slipways and we can then just meet at calshot on the water.

if a really hot day ensure you have enough drinks for the whole day

sunglasses, hats and sun cream will be important if it is 30 degrees, Browguard (Colin) has sent me a load of the sunglasses he sells so you are welcome to try them and buy some

if anyone else has any safety tips or general advice then do feel free to share as this is the first major trip/trip round the iow for some folks i believe

looking forwards to it
