Rib Charter Rye to Arundel

We took a Rib Charter from Rye to Arundel in East Sussex yesterday. We have always wanted to run up The river Arun from Littlehampton to Arundel to have some lunch.

Littlehampton harbour entrance
We arrived when the tide was flooding and followed a fishing boat in through the shallows which helped as he definitely had local knowledge. After 20 mins at 6 knots we arrived in Arundel where we moored up and headed in to town for a bit to eat.
arundel mooring
The trip from Rye to Arundel return was 135 miles and we used 270 litres of fuel!!. On the return journey about 10 miles off Brighton we came across a wind farm test facility pic below for the new wind farm.

RIB trip to Ramsgate and the Goodwin sands in Kent

Goodwin Sands rib trip off kent

We left Rye Harbour in Sussex at lunch time to head for Ramsgate Marina in Kent. From ther we would head out to the Goodwin Sands for the evening low spring tide. It was a 0.1 meter tide which is very low. When we got out to the sands the bar was massive a good two meters out of the water.

A couple of the customers in the pic above on the charter got out and had a walk around the vast expanse of sand full of seals and other wildlife. It was a fantastic sunset. Being 5 miles in the channel with nobody else around is a great experience.

Sunset on the goodwin sands

When we completed the 40 mile journey back to Rye Harbour past Dover Marina, Dungeness and round the firing range at Lydd we found the huge spring tide at Rye covering the car park. No cars in there this time, there sometimes are. 100 mile round trip and all the customers enjoyed it.
