Solent

Welcome  

The Solent Area covers the south coast of England from Brighton to Weymouth and includes the Isle of Wight.
Chichester Harbour provides a unique area of safe sailing and anchoring. There are main channels feeding inland to Emsworth, Bosham and to Chichester.
While Poole Harbour towards the west side of the area offers quiet anchorages near to marinas and a busy town
In between these the main area of the Solent offers a wide variety of places to visit and spend time to explore.
Take a while to browse our pages of Events, News and Features to see what is happening and the interesting things and adventures our members get up to sailing in the Solent and beyond.
