Hi Nick
It's the Northernmost one of the set of straboard marks that line the western edge of the Winner bank in the entrance to Chichester Harbour....directly opposite Hayling Island sailing Club.

Mid Winner then.
I was just going to say that.

The waves must be over the very popular summertime bottom scrubbing bank where all the Gin Palaces park.

The Nab Tower is nice and clear in pic 2. Hard to believe it is over 7nm miles away.

If some enterprising navigation instructor stuck a sign out there, he would do a roaring trade. Perhaps a low tide navigation workshop would work.

Nick...the waves were the up-splurge...the down-splurge revealed the shingle bank, you can hear the shingle grinding sometimes.

You are right....it would provide a momentary rush of adrenaline, that special "bring my brown corduroy trousers" kind of adrenaline, just before your boat hits the bottom. Arf

I was a good zoom lens length away.


Jackeens....cheers me dears
