We are booked into the Royal Southampton Yacht Club at Gins Farm, River Beaulieu on the evening of 18th July. We will be berthed on the mid-river pontoon that is opposite Gins Farm, therefore tenders will be required to get ashore. If you don’t have one, other members will be able to ferry you ashore. A meal has been arranged in the clubhouse and I will circulate a menu closer to the time.
It should be noted that the bar at the entrance to the river has a depth of 0.9m at LWS. Also, there is a double HW at or near spring tide, this occurs approximately 1¾ hours after the first HW. For those who have not visited the River Beaulieu before, it is important that you adhere to the bouyed channel in order to avoid the Spit which lies between The Beaulieu and The Solent.
Additional passage planning information can be found at:
Standard Port: Portsmouth

Sat 18th July 1355 4.6m Spring tide
Sun 19th July 1436 4.5m
