Solent Shred & Looking for a new house - #CourtInTheAct

Postby Toby » Mon Jul 01, 2019 2:20 pm

The starts finally aligned the other day and one of the down winders that I have wanted to do for a long time opened up. With a strong easterly wind, the solent becomes one of the best spots for a down winder on the south coast of the UK. We started in Cowes, on the day before the round the island race and ended up in Colwell bay near the Hut. Roughly about 30 miles with a variety of conditions along the way. Down winders are some of the best ways to explore, learn and get loads of time on the water!! Don't try this one unless you are very experienced and know everything about tide, wind and time...

Riding with my father Andrew and Jeremey Waitt, we did it in around 3.5 hours. Chris Burke and the boys rode from Hayling Island to Poole Harbour on the same day, which worked out close to 100km! Don't take this on lightly!!
