IOW Solent Coast

End of last week I joined the Isle of Wight Sea Kayaking crew for their circumnavigation exped. The trip included instruction on planning, navigation as well as packing a sea kayak for a multi day trip.

Pretty much ‘Plan A’ changed as soon as we got on the water at Freshwater! a swell was building so it was decided that we’d head off to the Solent coast.

We set off for the north coast where we could find some shelter from the wind and swell. After a while we ended up in Newtown Creek where we packed boats and launched again!

 

 

We headed off towards the Solent and followed the westerly tide for a couple of hours passing Yarmouth and ending up at Fort Victoria Country Park This was to be our first camp spot.
