Where do Submarines stop off?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I know the Vanguard have pretty much a return trip to Faslane.

    I was told at the AFCO that fleet boats stop of in certain places, and you may get a bit of shore leave there. He said that they tend to always stop of at the same ports, but he didn't shed light on which ones. My question is where do they normally stop?

  3. I went to the isle of wight once.
     
  4. I saw one in (********) and (***************), but that was it!
     
  5. Coulport, but only once every 3 months
     
  6. Corfu, Corfu, Corfu (three times), Haifa - Israel, Charleston South Carolina,
    Fort Lauderdale, Cape Canavarel, West Palm Beach, Andros Island, Haakonsvern, Brest,
    Cardiff, Ispwich, Hull, Gibraltar, Every island in and around Scotland, Crete, Sao Vincente,
    Tenerife....and I've just forgotten a load of others. I'll have a think.

    Nowadays it's Drakes Island (once round and back again), Rhu Narrows and ** Wharf
    (Insert number as appropriate).
     
  7. I went once it was enough.
     
  8. Did some one seriously ask this question?

    Red Sea. Once again, no runs ashore.

  12. We used to stop off at Rhu narrows, but that was so some bloke with lots of bling could row ashore before we got too close to the sea
     
  13. There was always a bloke with a fur hat on at Rhu Narrows with a
    pencil and a notebook and a pair of binoculars. I suppose he was
    a "submarine spotter" instead of a train spotter. Everyone should
    have a hobby. I suppose he wanders down there with a mobile
    phone and an I-pad nowadays.
     
  14. He used to anchore his yatch just off the top of paddy land, I think he was a radio buff as well, cos it had lots of aerials
     
  15. I bet his name was boris
     
  16. Having given this some serious thought, most boats stop off in either Rosyth or 3 basin in Guzz.
     
  17. will also add that Delta buoy is a popular destination
     
  18. Only coz we won't let you back over here! :)
