Fareham Creek

On a very cold grey winter's day I had to get a couple of new tyres fitted over in Fareham, so with the whole town in lockdown I decided to keep out of the way while Gary and his team at the tyre bay got on with the work I went for a walk along the creek.

I realised that I hadn't been to this part of the creek for 30 years, back when we kept a Newbridge Virgo Voyager on a drying pontoon mooring at Hamper marine

Above looking up the creek towards the town quay. Below the old warehouse  building on Lower Quay, used to be a yacht chandlers Trafalgar Yacht Services, probably still is. 

I recall a famous yachting journalist (so famous I can't recall his name) having a total meltdown while drying out on the slipway.

Fareham Sailing and Motorboat club, I seem to recall visiting on a cold winter lunch time to a warm and packed clubhouse with a roaring fire and very nice people.

Below looking up towards the head of the creek which mostly dries.

Nice to see Hamper marine moorings are still there given the pressures on waterside development.

The yellow boat I'm pretty sure is a Morcombe Bay Prawner (or possibly a Nobbie), going back some years I knew the then owner who I recall sold her to buy an junk rigged Endurance.
