MOORINGS AND ANCHORAGES
There are plenty of visitor swinging moorings and river pontoons in Cowes Harbour/river Medina operated by the Cowes Harbour Commissioners. Call HM1 on VHF Ch 69.
The ever-popular Folly Inn also has a visitor pontoon. VHF Ch 72
Although offering good protection from southwesterlies, anchoring can be uncomfortable due to the wash from large commercial ships. It does, however, make a pleasant day anchorage for lunch. Landing is not permitted on the shore as the beach is private.
Managed by the National Trust, there are paid-for visitor moorings, and you can anchor with a donation to the charity. Harbourmaster: 01983 531424
