Just after neap tides (Chi HW 09.09 BST) so either leave promptly Tuesday morning to catch a favourable tide up the eastern Solent to the Beaulieu River entrance or have a more leisurely sail but against the tide and perhaps stop for lunch on the way at Osborne Bay. Reservations made at the mid-river pontoon at Bucklers Hard Yacht Harbour but may change to alongside the fuel pontoon depending on the number of boats and their preference. HW at Bucklers Hard will be 08.49 and 21.21 with LW at 14.43 (0.9m). Drinks on pontoon at 18.00. We plan individual arrangements for eating on Tuesday evening but to dine together at The Master Builders on Wednesday (for those that want).
On Wednesday there will be an opportunity to visit the various attractions in Beaulieu village (Palace House, Abbey, National Motor Museum),or possibly the splendid gardens at Exbury, or for a walk in the New Forest.
Return on Thursday with HW around 10.40 and LW 15.20 at Chichester (favourable east-going tide from about 15.00).
