Would consider lunch stop only in southerlies/south westerlies. As noted - quite lumpy due to passing traffic in be main channel.

The regular passing of big ships makes for a rolly night even when otherwise sheltered from prevailing wind and seas.

Highly overrated really. Used as lunch destination by Hamble and other nearby motor boaters and yachties. No landing. Often busy. If you ever want to see an example of non use of day marks for anchoring, this is the place!

Pleasant anchorage good for a swim in warm weather. No landing on the beach allowed.
