Interesting. Thanks for the update.
So Govt more interested in spending 100billion getting to Birmingham 20mins quicker than saving coastline.
Makes perfect sense. :roll:

Very sad state of affairs; thought it was bad enough last year with banning the odd overnight stay. The extent of erosion as seen this week on the CBK webcam is very dramatic.

Perhaps we should buy Pringle jumpers and join the golf club, since their clubhouse might be the new beach soon enough? Wetsuit boots in the bar may be too much for golfy types though.

I think they may be missing a trick with the beach huts. Once they're each valued at the £250k+ that Southerners will pay for a shed-by-the-sea, the Hayling (or, as I like to call it, 'East Mudeford') huts will be worth more than the whole of Liverpool. Then surely Government funds should be forthcoming. ;)

Just a question about the sailing there now - in so far - do you have to park way down the beach (by the inn) and then have a massive hack upwind to get to the waves?

is it worth it? At the moment i think i will just go to Wittering / Bracks

If there's any swell the waves come in from the south east so in a SW you can use the swell to get up wind. Last Monday I launched right by the car park and sailed right up to the kite area in one tack then spent 3 hours sailing down the line and using the waves on the inside to get back to where I started from. If it's more westerly you are probably better off going to Wittering although it's high tide at lunch time tomorrow so you might be best at West (still free to non members until next weekend).

I see that there are diggers etc. moving shingle about up in front of the golf course on the webcam today. Well they've got to protect the golf course! ;)

we like to keep quiet about how nice Liverpool actually is it helps to keep the riffraff out but if our football team is beating everyone it does breed haters

and if we ever see any Govt. funds I will let you know
