... consistent with "speed as safe navigation permits", as they say.

ABP publish a useful guide summarizing information for small boat activities in the Solent.

Edit: I should add, there are areas with speed limits enforced by Byelaws, such as the Hamble River

Thanks gtb, I had seen that little pamphlet before. It was flat calm and there was no traffic so I felt the speed I was safe for navigation considering the conditions. I know it's six up the itchen and that's what I tried to keep to... Perhaps I should put it on silent for that bit next time I was watching water speed....

Great cause Whisper, I'll be there, departing from Yarmouth. Did the same trip last weekend running counter to the record slow Round the Island race - fantastic for sunbathing but not much action!

Rock 'n' roll baby!

Osiris has been cleaned, treated to a new prop and is hitched and ready to depart Cheshire at 06:00 tomorrow morning bound for Calshot and a FANTASTIC weekend with fellow nobbers raising money for a brilliant cause!

Looking forward to meeting new people, seeing MacRIB first-hand and enjoying great craic with fellow nobbers, both on and off the water.
