‘Lock into Island Harbour’ Trip 2023 @ Mill Lane, Binfield Newport, Isle of Wight, GB PO302LA
Apr 28 – May 1 all-day

 

This trip is a very popular destination allowing walks up the river to Newport and down the river to the Folly Inn.  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.

Pop Along to Portland Marina Trip 2023 @ Portland Marina
Jun 30 – Jul 2 all-day

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

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

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

Mecury Yacht Haven Trip 2023 @ Mercury Yacht Haven
Aug 4 – Aug 6 all-day

Mercury Yacht Harbour is set in a sheltered wooded site where the shallow waters of Badnam Creek join the River Hamble. Originally built by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the marina enjoys deep water access at all states of tide, and its excellent facilities include the Gaff Rigger bar, restaurant and chandlers. It is also, if you’re a bit of an adventurer, a brilliant launch pad for exciting dinghy trips up the river Hamble, where you can drift into the country and see the wonderful bird life that is always present on the upper reaches of the river.

Wonder Down to Weymouth Trip 2023 @ Weymouth Marina

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.
