Hi ,
looks like you all had a nice flat day and heaps of fun running around the solent.

just had a look at the route you took thru Boulder/ pullar (see pic). Any particular reason not too take the boulder/street route ?. theres seems to be 1 or 2 shallows (ringed in yellow one down to 0.5 off map) there . does it get a bit bumpy over them ? .

thinking about your cruise shortly as the route i posted on the thread was the boulder/street markers.

seee ya soon

Hi Paul

The route throught The Street works well if you have plenty of water there. I've been caught out badly here before and bumped my skeg on a rock but that was at low tide on a spring.
My stupid fault for being there at the time.

Yesterday Andre and I got through here no trouble half way up a rising tide.

Theres no doubt that it is always safer to go out to the Outer Owers and then back in again as this will avoid all the rocks completely, but having been through here a few times now it is a route I would use on the upper end of any tide.

And it's on the market for the princely sum of 7,000,000

Looks like you had a great time. I wish we could have been out on the water but had to finish fitting the radio. Looking forward to seeing you at Littlehampton.

The biggest challenge with the inshore route is the overfalls that you tend to get. They only last about half a mile though, and can give some very entertaining conditions!

Once you are through the Boulder/Street "gate" keep the Mixon beacon close to port and it's fine.

Completely agree JK.

I've been out there before in a mirror calm sea at a high end of tide and the sea can boil in this area.

Just makes it more fun to be there!
