Yes, beaching for a short time would work. I'd thought we risked getting stranded but just realised I read the tides for wrong day!
I'd prefer to make it a day sail and return to Haslar. If we stayed overnight we wouldn't be able to leave until the afternoon, which is rather late for getting back to Hamble. Or leave before 7am which is a bit stressful!
