I have my opinion, (natch!), what do you think?


In 1986 we went cruising for a few years. After 20 years and 50+ countries and several oceans, we are STILL "cruising for a few years".

In these waters, due to the restiction in depth, there is 1000m exclusion zone in front of commercial shipping......... everyone who sails in the Solent should be well aware of the need to keep clear!
