‘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.

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 Exmouth 2022 @ Exmouth Marina
Aug 29 @ 9:00 am – Sep 4 @ 4:00 pm

This is our new adventure of the cruising calendar.  A chance to finish off the year with a trip across Lyme Bay to Exmouth Marina.  The marina is situated right on the entrance to the river Exe and the town of Exmouth, with all its shops, pubs and restaurants is only a 5 minute walk from the marina, but there is The Point Bar & Grill, The Beach Pub and the Rockfish Restaurant right next to the Marina if you want the covenience of not wandering far.

This is a first for a CQBHA marina booking but there will only be 6 berths available initially, there is a chance of one or two more nearer the time if residents leave empty berths. On this trip we will be running a waiting list for extra berths if they become available.

This trip 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.
