I expect anywind direction except straight easterly or ENE will give us good shelter in the Solent , any anything up to a F4 will be enjoyable / fun - more than that and it will get ' exciting/ wet' .
The majority of the trip is in the lee of Hurst spit , with the only gap being where the wind and waves can run straight though Hurst Castle in a SW wind, but even then by the time you get to Yarmouth it usually calms down.
