An update on Chichester for trailers.
Slipway launching is self-serve, but there's a charge of £34 for launch & recover together.
The marina don't offer trailer storage, but we will find something close by, at minimum cost for the week. There are a number of possibilities we're working on.

That's excellent thank you
We are booked into Bembridge.
I don't know if you recall that we would like to come down on the Sunday before. Should I contact Chichester direct and would you ask about trailer storage for us please whilst you are looking.
Thanks Jonathan and Miriam
As it happens I've just had a reply from the marina about your extra days, and they ask if you'd contact them directly. We will keep your dates in mind when sorting trailer parking.
Sorry to add extra complications to your already heavy workload on this.
We are hoping to add some extra days but not yet sure if it will be before or after.
I can talk to Chichester marina direct regarding launching and mooring but would you please bear in mind the possibility of these extra days for trailer storage.
(Pity about the storage. They have - or at least they used to have, plenty of car and trailer storage around the slipway)
We have found a promising place, quite near the marina. Roly is going to check it out next week, and if it's all OK I'll post the details and leave people to make their own reservations - I'm aware that not everyone will want the same dates. I've been quoted £10/week, so hopefully it will work out.
More to follow!
We have arranged a group BBQ at Bembridge marina for the Sunday night stop.
They have a large covered seating area on the harbour side, and have two large gas BBQs for hire, all of which we have booked. This should be enough space and cooking facilities for the whole fleet!
The MOA is paying the hire costs, but we ask crews to bring their own food for cooking. You will need to stock up in Gosport before we leave Haslar as there is nothing at Bembridge. There is however a bar on the harbour side :-)
Please also remember to book your Bembridge mooring as in my previous post. Could you all confirm here when you've done so.
ASHANTI is booked in at Bembridge.
Fred's Stores was at Tollesbury - when we eventually found it !!
Bembridge booked, hopefully there will still be some water in the harbour!
