View Full Version : Solent cruise - final details!

24-Aug-12, 10:31 AM
Okay, weather has swung more in favour towards Sunday as the best day.

Here's the final details.

LAUNCH : 10am at Compass Point
Ensign Way, Southampton SO31 4RA

Slipway is shingle at the top, not used much and has limitless free parking.

Low Water is 1200.


Forecast weather (currently!) is a 12 knot westerly (windguru) and 5-10mph (BBC) with rain later in the day.

We're planning to leave at 10am (leave - not arrive at the slip!) and head to the Osbourne View pub for a drink. Thereafter we'll take a look at the conditions and decide whether a hop over to the island is viable, or a run down towards Calshot/Lymington.

Equip well, this is deep water cruising - lifejackets, VHF/Waterproof mobile cover, flare kit, tow line and a chart of the area. If you have an iphone buy the navionics app today! Your craft needs to be reliable and this cruise is probably not suitable for first time operators.

If the weather looks good, we'll do a cruise monday as well.
