The Solent

messing about on boats has always been a part of my life, though never central to it

 

My first husband built a sailing dinghy and we had marvellous adventures in the Solent and its estuaries. Later,  I ventured further into the English Channel, experiencing a different kind of sailing and a different kind of sea.  Latterly we have pottered around the Solent and to Freshwater Bay in a small motor boat and many of the images shown here spring from these day trips, or Jollies.
