    Newtown Creek Cruise

    Sat Mar 30 - Apr 1st HW 1420(GMT) 4.3

    “ A quiet backwater with a busy medieval past, now bursting with wildlife and a town hall with no town…..”

    Join us for the first season cruise to Newtown Creek, a large natural inland harbour located on the Isle of Wight’s north western coast and then on Sunday head east to Bembridge for a good stretch of the legs, resulting in a lazy start home on Monday. Sounds perfect

    Saturday 30th March Portmouth to Newtown Creek

    Yarmouth HW 1350(GMT) 2.8

    Depart Portsmouth @ 1100, tide against us for a little while and then we have the whole afternoon to enjoy a pleasant sail to Newtown River. Arrive before 1600

    Pick up a buoy and relax in the company of friends, taking in the peaceful surroundings of Newtown Creek. Dinner on board or at The New Inn, it’s only a pleasant dinghy ride down stream and a refreshing stroll to the bar.

    Sunday 31st March Newtown to Bembridge

    Yarmouth LW 0840(GMT) 1.0

    Bembridge HW 1620(GMT) 2.7

    Depart @ 10 after breakfast to catch the east going tide and arrive just before it turns. Brading Haven Yacht Club is the destination which offers visiting yachtsmen hot meals and generous bar hours.

    Monday 1st April

    Bembridge HW 1720(BST)  2.5

    Early or late start, it’s up to you. (Don't forget we lose an hour) Maybe an early start, clear the bar and drop the anchor in Priory Bay for a cooked breakfast or stay and take a stroll into the Bembridge. It is a bit of a walk, but worth every step.

    Hope you can join us for our first cruise in 2024. Gaius and myself have booked up the fine weather, just need you to accompany us.

    Beaulieu Cruise and Beyond

    Sat 25th HW1330(BST) 4.4

    “Monks, shipbuilding, warfare and tourism… the Beaulieu River takes you on a remarkable journey through history.”

    Come and join us in the Beaulieu River, undoubtedly the most beautiful harbour on the mainland side of the Solent. A perfect location for our journey west to Lymington for our final stay on Sunday night

    Saturday 25th May Portsmouth to Bucklers Hard

    Stansore Point (Beaulieu Entrance) HW 1300(BST) 3.8

    Leaving Portsmouth on a west going tide in plenty of time to clear the bar at the river entrance and heading down stream, a beautiful and tranquil spot, well-loved by yachtsmen and nature enthusiasts alike. Bring your own food, a BBQ might be on the cards.

    Sunday 26th May Beaulieu to Lymington

    Lymington HW 1540(BST) 2.9

    Newtown Creek HW 1320(BST) 2.9

    A lazy breakfast starts the day and when the lines are stored away, we can head over the bar by 1130 in time for the favourable tide to the west. Maybe a relaxing lunch at Newtown Creek, might be the order of the day. Lymington Yacht Haven will be our destination for the night and dinner in their bistro with a seriously good view from the outside tables upstairs, they also serve a respectable breakfast.

    Monday 27th May Lymington to the East

    We wake in time for the east tide to take us home or later if you want tp practice staying out of the main stream after it turns against you.

    Register as soon as possible so you don’t miss out on this popular cruise
