The Solent is the strait that separates the Isle of Wight from the mainland of England. It is about 20 miles in length and varies in width between two and a half and five miles, although the shingle Hurst Spit which projects one and a half miles into the Solent narrows the sea crossing between Hurst Castle and Colwell Bay to just over a mile.
It’s a perfect place for sailing. Watch this video mad by Halcyon Yachts to understand why.
