Introducing our newest 'member' at The Trafalgar Wharf Group. Everyone meet Thea :)

"What's your name, and where d'you come from?"
"My name's Thea and I come from Boat Club Trafalgar." 
(crowd cheer and clap) :)
Ok, so it's not quite Blind Date, but we'd like to introduce you to Thea.  She is the newest club boat at Boat Club Trafalgar which is based here at Trafalgar Wharf in Portsmouth, just opposite Port Solent.
Boat Club Trafalgar is part of the Trafalgar Wharf Group.  Along with the boat club we offer new and used boat sales and RYA training, and various boat storage solutions, including the UK's largest indoor drystack, a sheltered marina, swinging moorings and hard-standings for boat storage.
Now, back to the lovely Thea: She's a stunning brand new Ballistic RIB, 6.5 meters in length, suspension seats and a brand new Yamaha F200 engine. She will be available to book out from the boat club from the beginning of May.  Isn't she a beauty.
If you can see yourself taking her out for a blast across the Solent with your friends and family, or indeed any of the other 6 club boats, then perhaps Boat Club Trafalgar is for you. 

Unlimited boating for a simple monthly fee.  It's as easy as that
If you'd like some more information on the club then call either Steve or Jake on 02392 706599 or email them at and they will answer all your questions.  Or pop down and have a look around.

It's going to be sunny this weekend - here are some great day trips in the Solent

The summer is finally here (we think!) and we're loving it. With the arrival of the sun, there is no better time to get out on your boat and enjoy it. So, I thought I would give you some ideas of fantastic day trips around the Solent.
If you no longer own your boat or haven't got around to buying one yet but still want to get out on the water then Boat Club Trafalgar can help you with that. They have 7 top of the range boats suitable for all types of adventures that you can use for a simply monthly fee.  It couldn't be easier.   The boat club is part of The Trafalgar Wharf Group and they are based here on site with us at Trafalgar Wharf in Portsmouth.  Give Steve or Jake a call on 02392 706599 for more information, or check out
Now...back to the places you can visit this weekend.
Yarmouth town is located in the western Solent and has main ferry services operating from its harbour. Yarmouth is known locally as being a great spot for fishing and the harbour is always busy with ferries and small boats. During the summer Yarmouth Castle is the perfect place to visit for fantastic sea views and family picnics. It will take you approximately 2 hours to reach Yarmouth from Trafalgar Wharf at an average cruising speed.
Lymington is a Georgian market town located on the southern edge of the New Forest. There are two large marinas giving you plenty of places to berth. Lymington has a large number of shops, boutiques, restaurants and pubs so you have a large choice of places to go for a relaxing day exploring the town. Lymington is around a 2.5 hour cruise from Trafalgar Wharf.
Hamble River is a picturesque, quiet river at the entrance to Southampton Water with plenty of pubs and marinas dotted along its length. Hamble Point Marina at the mouth of the river has a chandlery, plenty of berths and a pub called the Ketch Rigger, a great choice for a Sunday lunch.
For an afternoon of shopping and a leisurely pub lunch, you can visit Hamble-le-Rice, a village full of cobbled streets and fine dining.
Much further along the Hamble is Swanwick Marina with plenty of pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area as well as the Boat House CafĂ© in the marina itself. The Hamble is around 1 hours cruise from Trafalgar Wharf.
Have a fantastic weekend...whatever you do :)
