The Isle of Wight and The Needles
North of the Isle Of Wight Trinovante will be in the yachting and sailing mecca of the Solent. This is a very busy stretch of water so the crew will need to be on a sharp lookout.
Hopefully we’ll get a good view of the landmark ‘Needles’ as we clear the island. The three white rock stacks of the Needles look like a chalky backbone extending into the sea. They are navigationally marked for mariners by a 19th centuary lighthouse.
It is possible Trinovante will now head into Weymouth or Poole for an overnight stop, and a run ashore for the crew.
