Easter Trip to Lymington Cruise 2022 @ Lymington Yacht Haven
Apr 15 – Apr 18 all-day

 

Our first cruise of the season will see a trip up the Solent to Lymington Yacht Haven.  This is a new marina to us in recent times but a chance to have a look around the town of Lymington and it shops and pubs and experience the river with its ferries and bustling traffic.

Note: Because the Marina has charged us a £10 berth deposit for this cruise, to secure our individual berths, we have had to add this to our normal Cruise fee of £15 for this trip.

Port Hamble Cruise 2022 @ Port Hamble Marina, River Hamble
Apr 30 – May 2 all-day

Port Hamble Marina1

This is a chance to get to an MDL marina with all it to offer.  Time to get the dinghy out and explore up river or simply kick back and chill.

This busy marina in the heart of the South Coast is a favourite for many. Great for a scenic trip up the river in the dinghy to Swanwick and beyond. The picturesque Hamble Village, with its inviting pubs and restaurants, is only a few minutes walk away.

Platinum Jubilee Holiday Cruise to Haslar 2022 @ Haslar Marina, Haslar Rd, Gosport PO12 1NU
Jun 2 – Jun 5 all-day

 

We make a return to Haslar Marina after many years.  This trip is planned as a Bank Holiday cruise with the plan to return to Cobbs on the Sunday but a chance for those on the cruise to extend it to a week away – before or after – to explore the far corners of Portsmouth Harbour to Port Solent.

The stay at this well-appointed marina where you can eat, drink, shop or just unwind has been booked.  The Mary Mouse is a must see.  If people want to extend the time, they will need to book the next venue (s) themselves.

From Haslar you can get a boat across to Portsmouth and also get some retail therapy at Gunwarf Quays.

‘Lock into Island Harbour’ Cruise 2022 @ Mill Lane, Binfield Newport, Isle of Wight, GB PO302LA
Jul 1 – Jul 3 all-day

 

This trip may be a new one for most.  A late Friday afternoon trip to Island Harbour, which is one of the Solent’s best-kept secrets. Conveniently situated on the River Medina, two miles south of Cowes, it’s one of the most picturesque riverside locations. This is a chance to go through a lock without it being too challenging after a gentle trip up the Medina past the previous venue of Shepards Wharf.

Sat within this tranquil setting is ‘The Breeze Restaurant & Bar’. Exclusively operated by the marina, The Breeze is open daily and offers a quality breakfast, lunch and dinner menu at very reasonable prices. For more information please click here.

There is a new cycle track from the marina into Newport, the County Town of the Isle of Wight and riverside walks, ideal for ramblers and dog walkers. The marina is also convenient for Island bus routes, making Island Harbour a great central base from which to discover the island.

This is not a trip to be missed if you would like to expand your boating skills and wander further afield on the Isle of Wight.

Plot a Course to Portland Marina Cruise 2022 @ Portland Marina
Jul 29 – Jul 31 all-day

As one of the newest marinas on the south coast, we thought it would be a good idea to pay Portland another visit. Heading west gives us a chance to take in the spectacular scenery and iconic landmarks of the Jurassic Coast!

It is planned as a one night stay to give you a chance to explore Chesil Beach and the Isle of Portland.  You could opt to extend the stay of course.

This cruise is ideal for smaller boats or for those who wanted to ‘dip their toe in the water’ of cruising in company.

Whistle Down to Weymouth 2022 @ Weymouth Marina
Aug 27 – Aug 29 all-day

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Weymouth still proves to be the most popular of our cruise destinations, marking the end of our Association cruising season. This small and friendly marina is a summer holiday destination for many, with its shops, bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. With limited space here, booking early is essential as this is often the first cruise to get full.

Blast down to Brixham Cruise 2022 @ Brixham Marina
Aug 29 – Sep 4 all-day

Brixham Marina is another MDL marina.  This is our adventure of the cruising calendar.  A chance to finish off the year with a trip across Lyme Bay to the West Country.  It can be booked as a separate cruise – linking up with those leaving Weymouth – or as a follow-on cruise after the Weymouth Bank Holiday visit.

Brixham makes a good staging post for walks to Berry Head or a bus trip to Paignton and then by steam train to Dartmouth. It is also an easy trip to visit Torquay across the bay by bus or ferry.

Please note.  At time of writing, we are still trying to finalise a venue.  It may not be Brixham or may, indeed, be cancelled.
