There are two public slipways in Langstone Harbour where PWC can be launched and recovered at all states of the tide. These give access to the narrow neck of water at the harbour entrance known as the Run, where tidal rates can at times reach 5 knots. TAKE CARE WHEN LAUNCHING AND RECOVERING1
. Ferry Point Slipway (Hayling Island)
Gives access from the east side of the harbour entrance into the Run at all states of the tide. There is nearby parking, a pub adjacent to the slipway and sandy beach extending southward from the slipway beyond the limits of the harbour. This is the busiest slipway in the harbour. The Harbour Office is sited adjacent to the Hayling slipway.2. Eastney Slipway (Portsmouth)
The Eastney slipway lies on the west shore of the Run, approximately 1K distant from the Hayling slipway. The slipway gives access from Portsmouth, which is densely populated. There is limited parking close to the slipway and there are no public facilities. The beach on the west side of the Run is shingle and the slipway gives access to the harbour at all states of the tide.
Access & Parking
Please show consideration when using our slipways. At peak times there may be other customers launching ahead of you. Remember that there is a pub adjacent to the Hayling slipway and people in the vicinity may behave unpredictably. The Harbour Board cannot provide parking facilities. There is a ’pay and display’ car park adjoining the Ferry Boat Inn and there is a Council car park on the seafront just south of the Ferry Boat Inn. Please do not bring your vehicle or trailer into the Harbour Board compound, it is a working area. Do not leave your vehicle in the hatched zone at the top of the Hayling slipway or on the beach.
