Re: A great pub to sail to...

Dave, welcome to CF

For those who wonder what this is about, well its a couple of blokes going sailing to pubs and hostilleries around the Solent UK. No bades in bikinis, just two blokes and some real beers.

Pete

Welcome to CF Dave..
My old local from the mid/late 80's.. restored my old timber first boat in the yard next door.. and across the road is the rest of the B'yard.. and where they landed is where my boat 'sank' 16mths after I launched her when one of the bilge keels fell off on a return from a crossing to Cherbourg..
Its a great pub..

I said the same thing about bitcoins in 2009.

Actually they could be on to something, even publish a guide to good water side pubs with grub and real ales along the English Coast.

Re: A great pub to sail to...

Lets start him off.

It was bitterly cold January night with a strong ebb tide running out through the Needles Channel against a fearsome south westerly gale. Past the white chalk cliffs fighting the tiller all the way to avoid the treacherous shifting gravel banks to the North. The only sight of land a small white light on the distant foreshore marked a whirlpool known locally as the trap, were many a sailor had met his match over the years........

Like it's so hard to find a good waterside pub along the English Coast . . .

Next they will publish a guide to the sheep of New Zealand . . .

Kidding aside, I enjoyed the video. Just two old geezers knocking around the Solent in winter time and drinking beer. I suppose it might be nicer in winter to be in the Caribbean, but the Solent in winter is a joyous place for unambitious short-range cruising, just messing around in boats . . .

Yes, but it's actually a Nor'easter we've been having for the last couple of days. Cowes is exposed to the NE and the water was just boiling yesterday. Chafed through a nylon dock line I think the gale has about blown itself out, but we will have Easterlies the rest of the week. Good weather to get out of the Solent and take a run out to Dartmouth, or across to C-bourg, if one could take time off work . ..

Its been told here before..
But.. long story short the boat was due to be lifted at high water the morning after I arrived.. tide went out during the night and she settled in the mud.. when the tide came back in the front 3 bolts gave and she filled with water.. as she was lifted the keel was hanging by its last bolt.. which luckily failed as she swung over the hard.. so no diver required.
As an aside.. I really liked the pub at the top of the Beaulieu River by the bridge.. used to motor up there and anchor , spend the evening in the pub then head back down next morning.. there's a pool one can anchor in with a bilge keeler.

Oh, I love that one. Monty's, right?

But note that you are no longer allowed to land in the town. You are meant to land at Buckler's Hard and walk up along the nature trail.

That one always has good beer, plenty of Jack (or rum or Tullamore Dew) and good stories.
