    As said before, tides at Stone Point are not that significant.

    But clearly it is difficult to have a get-together with one boat so take-up will dictate the way ahead.

    Hi

    You know the area better than me, but I was thinking about access to and from Stone point from being on a buoy or at anchor. The chart indicates that it dries around the 'island' at low water, and on the 17th LW is around 1945, so it would make getting to and from it at that time a bit difficult. On the 24th it's at 0010, with HW at 1600 so it would make getting to and from it easier?

    As I said, I don't know the area so please feel free to correct me!

    What is your draught?

    Horsey Island is surrounded by water at all states of the tide.

    The shallowest patch is from the Island Point NCM though the dog leg into the Walton Channel but even at low water provided you stay within the channel it is navigable for most vessels.

    There is plenty of water going into The Backwaters from the Pye End FWM to the Island Point NCM and on into Hamford Water to the Exchem SHM and beyond. The holding is very good but there are no mooring buoys in Hamford Water.

    The buoys are in the Walton Channel. The water at Stone Point is deep close-to but it runs hard at certain times. However, it is possible to anchor close-to just south of the Point out of the main current. We have spent many night at anchor there but if in doubt you could pick up a buoy further into the channel.

    Another alternative is to continue up to Titchmarsh Marina or, provided the tides are right, into the Walton Yacht Basin. The benefits of the basin are easy walking access to Walton and the beaches.

    Hope this helps.

    My draft is tiny ( 0.8m ) I was thinking about landing a dinghy on Stone Point, am I missing the point ( or indeed the location ), it looked to me that it wouldn't be possible to land at LW ( see attached )

    Provided you stay within the buoyed channel, with a draught of less than 1m you will be able to access the Walton Channel inbound from the sea at all states of the tide. Stone Point is sand but this turns to mud about 200 to 300m into the Walton Channel.

    Because the Walton Channel side of Stone Point is steep-to it is possible to anchor close-to outside the main flow at all states of the tide.

    The seaward side of of Stone Point is shallow and exposed to the sea so although I have anchored in daylight in settled weather conditions, I would not spend the night there.

    Thanks, I think I was /am being a complete idiot and read the chart as the drying area being all marsh and not sand.

    Hence I presume that it's possible to land a dingy at all states of the tide?

    Yes but stay close to the Point to avoid the mud.
