    First 27.7 | Sailboat ~ 8.6 m

    Our favourite spot in the solent. Worth noting that there are only 8 buoys which will always be officially reserved for visitors, the first two red boys at the river entrance are privately owned by an association (confirmed by harbour master), however are usually available but no fee payable to the river but you may have to move on. The next 8 are owned and maintained by the river. There are many others further up river that may be available for visitors and will be marked as such with a V, however the river does allow these to be leased long term so they are not guaranteed. Currently there are not many designated as visitor (2021). The harbour master will pop by and ask for payment, easiest to call the harbour directly and pay by phone.

    Beautiful little River - pick up a swing mooring or anchor just after SHM 17. Entrance sand bar is 0.9m so check tide before going in or out. Dinghy up the river to nice pub and small town

    Very nice place. Pick up a visitor mooring (orange buoy). You can dinghy upriver to a nice pub/ restaurant.
