    Default Chichester marina experts please

    Tomorrow LW 1600 0.9m. I draw 1.2m.
    I want to arrive about 1800. Will the seagulls be swimming or walking?
    If I should delay, by how much?

    No idea but I’m jealous you’re going somewhere that nice. Amazing place.

    Tides look moderate at the moment, so arriving 2hrs after LW I would have thought would be fine.
    Assuming you keep to the blue bits, it’s just the final approach to the waiting pontoon can be shallow.
    Low springs are not so good.

    I’ve never run aground near there, but don’t cut the inside corners of the turns. Some of the marker posts are there to deceive.

    There’s a charity event called kids out happening tomorrow.
    Boats taking kids with challenges for a picnic. Why not register and join in next year? I’ll give you the details when I see you in Cowes next week.

    Agreed. I HAVE run aground in the approach channel, on a rising tide luckily. Draft 1.7. I love Chichester, it's a revelation compared to some places I've been.

    It was about 1820 in the end. Drama free. About 2.5 m shallowest.

    That's good to hear.
    The last time I did the Kids Out thing, the kids mostly drove the boat once we were out of the moorings, under close supervision. I have no idea if I was meant to allow that or not.
    Also, doing figure of 8's at East Head can be a distraction...

    I'm annoyed that I won't be able to be there this year - boat will maybe be launched next week.
