GETTING TO THE BOAT
Betsie Jane is owned and managed by Blue Box Sailing. She is located in Hamble Point Marina at the entrance to the River Hamble. The postcode for the marina is SO31 4NB. You can view the location on google maps by clicking here.
On arrival to the marina follow the signposts to Blue Box Sailing and if you are bringing a car there is free parking outside the Blue Box Sailing Events Centre. Please check in upstairs in the Blue Box Sailing Events Centre with a member of our team. Our Events Centre has a Coffee Shop with panoramic views over the River Hamble and across the Solent where participants and their friends and family can enjoy refreshments before or after their trip.
If you are running late please let us know on 02380 988966 as soon as possible. We will do our best to wait for you, however unfortunately out of fairness to other participants we do need to leave as promptly as possible.
Due to the unique and historic nature of Betsie Jane we ask that participants wear flat shoes to ensure that the wooden deck is not damaged by high heels. As Betsie Jane's cockpit is open we recommend dressing warmly on cooler days. If it is raining Betsie Jane will have her rain cover on so that you will remain dry in the outside cockpit.
If you have any allergies or dietary requirements please let us know no later than 7 days prior to your trip. If you have already notified us at the time of booking we will have recorded your dietary requirements, but if you have not already let us know please reply to this email and we will ensure that we are able to offer an option on board to cater for you. We are able to cater for gluten and dairy free diets on all our trips, but we do ask that you give us 7 days notice to order in your food.
Betsie Jane will run in almost all weather conditions. In the event of wet or windy weather she will have her rain cover on, which means you will be protected in the outside cockpit but still be able to see out through the all round windows. Occasionally in extreme weather conditions we may have to postpone a trip for safety reasons. In this event we will contact you on the contact telephone numbers supplied. If you have any concerns about the weather please call us on 02380 988966 before setting out for your trip.
