Round the Island

With a 4.5 metre you will need to choose your day; it can get quite lumpy around the southern side of the island. When I measured it I made it about 73 miles, but this is not exact as I did have to allow for one or two diversions .
I remember Bedajim doing it in a similar size boat, he and his other half did seem to be taking some punishment , come to that so were we in a 5.5 metre XS

Hi if you allow fuel for 80 miles + 30-50% and going around clock wise you can top up at Yarmouth if you need too

I remember a couple of areas on the south side where the overfalls made it fun and just after the needles back in the Solent

Looking at the forecast Monday looks like it could be a good day to do it

They're very helpful and also let you fill up if you're going anti-clockwise!

Richard - Ah yes, but if we all went anti-clockwise it may cause a depression.... and it might rain!
Unless you use an island in the Southern Hemisphere in which case it would be sunny!

Chris Ė Have a good dayÖ. And DONíT get tempted to do Alderney instead. (Itís about the same distance as round the island)
