Mooring at Fareham

Post by TyroSailor » Sat Jul 01, 2017 4:09 pm

The other day I was up the creek at Fareham to meet someone, and looking for an overnight berth. The revered Tom Cunliffe suggests the Town Quay but there was no room at the inn, and the chap at the marina was most unhelpful.

His assistant did suggest, however, parking alongside the slip next to Trafalgar and the Westerly Shop. Despite the obvious attraction of this I was reluctant to tie up to a wall in a tidal creek with no knowledge of the bottom. Does anyone have experience of same? And could I have dried out on the slip and given the bottom a scrub?

(I went to Wicor in the end, who were very helpful.)

Did you find out? Always fancied heading that way, but always seem to stop at Hardway and our cheap beer :)

The ground either side of the slipway at Fareham is quite hard, just a little muddy. There are two wooden piles south of the slipway which fin keelers can use, plus the wall to the north of the slipway. Twin keelers can beach anywhere either side of the slipway. However, there is no fresh water or electricity available.

Thanks, Caroline.

Good to meet and chat with you the other day - I hope I didn't disturb your work too much. Just back from my first trip out west (as far as Wareham), where I've been reading the Uffa Fox book I bought from you.

I may well come round there and use the wall for a scrub some time :)

All the best
