Marine Information

  • The main (North) slipway (by the Jetty), can be very busy, the RNLI have priority. Beware launching one hour either side of extreme low water springs when there may be insufficient water. Trailers are to be returned to your boat park space. Small cats should be launched from the East slip which is unsuitable for vehicles and is mostly used by the Calshot Cats Club. Shallow draft boats will find the West slip into the creek, by the pontoons, a more sheltered option but it is only useable HW –1½ to +3½.
  • Boats and PW craft are not to be left unattended when on the water or slipways and must not be left by the jetty stairs, which are needed for Centre and RNLI use. The moorings west of the main slipway are private, light duty; members may use the CAC orange buoy closest north of the slipway, at their own risk. The buoy at the foot of the slip is for hauling off.
  • Information on current and recent wind speeds
