Event Details

Southampton Water Guided Trip Boat Club Trafalgar

As we travel up Southampton Water you’ll pass Calshot Spit, with a historic Tudor Castle and the original Flying Boat Hangers. Many of which are now used by Calshot Activities Centre. Perhaps for the last time, you will also see the vast Fawley Tower, a major navigational aid and part of the disused power station. Take a photo as the Tower is soon to be dismantled and replaced as part of a new development scheme!

Hythe is located on the southern side of Southampton Water and the New Forest. It has the oldest pier train that rumbles up and down the historic wooden pier to the Ferry over to Southampton.

The village of Hythe is a short walk from the modern Hythe Marina village along the board walk, where we will moor up. It is a historic seaside resort, with a fascinating history and great pubs and restaurants.

After lunch, we’ll take in the sights of Southampton Water and the River Itchen. Then pop into Ocean Village, former home of the start of the famous Whitbread Round the World Race, and the British Steel Global Challenge.
