We could hook up sooner.
HW Northney is 12:09 so we will be exiting via Langstone.
That way we could actually watch you sink.

I guess Nasher will probably be going in at the Ferry. You could have quite a crowd.

Solent Virgin

Have been reading with great interest the cruise you have planed for Sunday I have never done any boating in this area and would love to come along and join in but living 260 miles away leaves me at a disadvantage I don't mind towing the boat down but in terms of where to launch and where to meet I would be at a complete loss so if I could make it down maybe some kind person could furnish me with some information IE. if I come down the night before where to get b&b where I can leave the boat best place to launch this is asking a lot I know but it would be really nice to meet some of the ribbers of this forum and get to do some cruising in the Solent.

Cheers Milan

Not sure I can be there myself now but if you fancy coming to Lymington I could certainly give you some phone numbers for B&B and places to leave your boat. Yarmouth is only 3 miles away!

Right, the uni rib shall hover around the hayling ferry (not sword, in deference to Mark!!!) at 0930, hopefully meeting mark and nasher.

Milan, you could always stay at the Ibis in portsmouth, and I'm sure we could arrange somewhere to keep your boat overnight

Calshot activity centre is a good place to go in from and is one of the meeting up points do a search there is info on here about it. Not from that area so dont know about local B&B but sure someone will post some later. If all goes well we should be there about 10.30ish.
Good luck

Jimbo, Hayling ferry is OK, I can find that. Will you be following it from side to side?
I have looked at the chart and found Sword now.
