Go straight across into Manor Road which continues into Beach Road. At the end of Beach Road turn left at the roundabout onto the seafront. Proceed to the end of the seafront, following the road to the left and turn first right into Southwood Road. Continue almost to the end of Southwood Road and turn left into Bosmere Road then right into Sandypoint Road. Turn left into Bracklesham Road, then take the first left into Itchenor Road, following this road until you reach Sparkes Marina.


Sparkes Marina is located approximately 6 miles from Havant’s mainline station, with regular connections to London Waterloo. Use the National Rail Enquiries website to plan your journey.


Enter Chichester Harbour and proceed on the starboard side of the channel until the Hayling Island Sailing Club mast is bearing 240 degrees M (236 degrees T) on the portside. From this position you will see an East Cardinal Mark with tide gauge bearing approximately 290 degrees M (286 degrees T) and a jetty pontoon on the sailing club shore. Alter course to port onto a heading of 281 degrees M (277 degrees T). Adjust your course to pass midway between the cardinal mark and the pontoon. You will now see transit marks consisting of two dayglo orange St Andrews Crosses, bearing 281 degrees M (277 degrees T), adjusting your course to keep the transit in line. Proceed down the transit for approximately three cables, leaving the pile mooring to port. As you pass the last pile mooring you will see steel piles with red can top marks on your port bow (South West). Follow these marks which will lead you into the Marina. The approach channel from the Sailing Club to the Marina has been dredged to 2 metres below CD.
