Sailing on the Isle of Wight
If you ask anyone with a keen interest in sailing, you can bet they have heard of the Solent and the Isle of Wight. Separating the Island from the mainland, the Solent stretches 20 miles long and is one of the busiest stretches of water in the world, serving as a major shipping lane, as well as a hub for water sports
Many people choose to head over using the excellent ferry connections but equally, many people like to make their own way over, sailing in by wind or the power of their motoryacht. If you have the nautical know-how, the Isle of Wight is one of the best places to sail to, offering a warm welcome all year round.
