Has anyone had the pleasure of using a boat tent on the visitors pontoon at Bembridge? Any hot tips? I was very reassured when I phoned the harbour master but it will be my first visit there so any experiences would be welcome. Is the channel navigable at low tide with an outboard……obviously something I will find out one way or another before I set off……….(from Chichester harbour).

Dave, I have sailed in and out of Bembridge in naomi. At low tide it is very shallow indeed and a short shaft motor may hit bottom in places. By now you may well have found that out for yourself. I hope to sail from Chichester across to bembridge this coming year. Please keep in touch.
