SIB Holiday in the Solent

Just thought i would share some pictures of my couple of days out in the Solent whilst on holiday in the I.O.W
The shingle you can see in the picture is a small island in the middle of the solent which i succesfully landed on and now lay claim to!!

Shingle bank

I think you landed on The Shingles and if so I would not argue with your claim,

Given the price of local shingle I think you just laid claim to the equivalent of a gold mine

However, are you sure it's in the Solent?

I hope you have put some lights on that, or some nobber in a yacht is going to hit it, they seem to hit everything else
