Southampton Water Speed Limits

Hi all,

I shall be launching from the River Itchen on Monday and then heading south towards the IOW.

Can anyone tell me where I can open up the throttle and stop having to worry about speed limits.

Many Thanks in advance, Nick R.

If I remember rightly,once you are at the mouth of the itchen where it joins southampton water there is no speed limit Above this however I think it's a six knot limit.
