I'm hoping to join the fun.

With the current forecast of an Easterly, combined with LW at around 9:00 BST, together with a near spring tide. In other words, I'd expect a strong flood tide around the points, in particular St Cats points. This could be a little choppy. On balanced my view would be anticlockwise. Other thoughts?

Anti clockwise

For puerly selfish reason I prefer anticlockwise as we are leaving Chi harbour so it makes sense for us to go south .If so what would your eta at BEMBRIDGE are be ?

having read my previous posts i had said anticlockwise as a preferred direction when i actually meant clockwise.....

and others may have said the same by mistake

lets take a poll from here,

personally i say lets go clockwise so head out from calshot past bembridge and round.. that way we have a tail wind for more of the way..what say others?

I agree entirely. Not bothered about the tide. What's important for me is that for the longest exposed part of the trip that the sea will be behind me. It's no fun bashing into a 4' chop for 25 or more miles!

Clockwise it has to be.

Just one thought, if my memory serves me well without looking in the Almanac the tide in the Solent sets East until about (I think) 4-5 hours after HW Portsmouth. HW Portsmouth is at 0830 on Sat so that means that you will have wind against tide until about 1ish at St Cats and the needles channel. The point being with a 4-5 forecast it would be more comfortable to avoid either or both of St Cats and the needles channel before about 1ish. It therefore seems logical to head East first past the Forts and Bembridge first.

It also means we can watch a you all go past as we will be out in the Eastern Solent doing a bit of sailing practice pre Cowes week.
