Circumnavigations: Portsea Island

Portsea Island, along with its close neighbour - Hayling Island, seems tailor made as an introduction to the world of island circumnavigations. A relatively short round trip, it still incorporates the necessity of tidal planning in order to set a good time - and to avoid a low bridge or a muddy walk!

For a real challenge try for the double - Portsea and Hayling combined!

Note: Portsmouth Harbour is a landlocked natural harbour with a narrow entrance. It contains a busy commercial port, ferry terminals, a military range and a Royal Navy Dockyard. Check for shipping movements and follow QHM Regulations:

Though part of this trip is within the more sheltered waters of Portsmouth and Langstone Harbours, it is fully exposed along the south coast of the island, please read the thoughts on safety: Safety - Info Page
