Intending to bring my trailered racing boat to the south coast for a couple of months this summer.
There are marinas a plenty of course but I'm looking for a yard to store it that also has a decent slipway for launching.

Any ideas? Doesn't have to be Southampton exactly, the Hamble would be fine too.

Hamble Point is probably your best bet.

At the cheaper end of the scale, maybe somewhere like Drivers or Kemp Quay on the Itchen?

Kemps hasn’t got a slipway
Yes, so they informed me today unfortunately, would have been a decent spot otherwise.
After some scouring on google maps I found that Merlin on the Itchen has a slipway. I'll try them tomorrow.
Had a look at Foulkes and they seem to be all powerboats, as do the yards around it which suggests that the A27 bridge does not have the height to get a yacht under.

From the Needles to the Nab, from Cowes to St Cath

The A27 road bridge is definitely too low if you have a mast

Elephant boatyard Bursledon.

Lauren Marine Woolston, cant recall if there is a slip.

Try one of the clubs? There is loads.

Go carefully with Hamble Point. The tide is a bit lively on the slip esp on the spring ebb.

Marchwood Yacht Club.

Calshot?

Solent
Rodding forge. Allington Lane, Fair oak. Caravan and boat storage. About £50 a month. Less than 15 mins drive from the free slipway at Bursledon. It’s the cheapest way to trailer sail the Solent.

Roddington Forge - Roddington Forge Leisure Storage Ltd

Also, if she is small enough to fit on a trailer you might be able to pick up a Hamble harbour master mooring for less than £700 /year. Use a dinghy, water taxi or join a club and use the bosun service. There are of options.
