Cruising notes for our dinghy cruises.
We launched from the public slipway near the RNLI station in Lymington, with six boats in the fleet. The cruise was a gentle straight line sail from Lymington, out to the Isle of Wight. Newton Creek is a beautiful place to sail to.
There were two possible lunch stops, either at the creek’s entrance/ picnic on the beach, or venturing further into the creek, landing at Shalfleet Quay. The decision was taken to go for the quay, landing with the boats nose-in to the shore. We then had a short walk to the pub for some lunch and local ale, before returning to Lymington. The weather was glorious, and a good time was had by all.
