Apologies for phone pics, and yes I do have a camera but was just too lazy to get it out of the locker(and even too lazy to choose square pics)
BTW I went the wrong way round, just for a change.

Looks fun!
St Catherine's with wind over tide is a little different to your pics, like lots of overfalls you can see the white water from quite a distance away, even a big RIB can get chucked around like a cork - thats me speaking from experience! lol

Blimey, that's quite a trip in reverse gear.

For some reason I was under the impression that the right way is anti-clockwise, maybe because that's the way the Round the Island Race goes. Tidal gates'n all that. Having said that, I think I'll stick to clockwise in future as it means you can make the "compulsory" stop in Yarmouth having done the tricky bits and can just relax there with the prospect of an easy run home.
That's how it was on Wednesday with Yarmouth at it's best in warm sun and not a breath of wind.
