    Excellent location when the Sw wind blows. Lovely beach for swimming. Watch out for rocky ledges when approaching from Bembridge.

    This anchorage is very convenient by completing the tour of the Isle of Wight to return to a Normandy harbor. The boat is ready to leave after a good night's sleep. In June 2017, I joined, with my old sailing boat, a Dufour 325, Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue in less than 10 hours.

    Ce mouillage est très pratique en bouclant le tour de l’île de Wight pour regagner un port Normand. Le voilier est prêt à partir après une bonne nuit de sommeil. En juin 2017, j’ai rejoint, avec mon ancien voilier un Dufour 325, Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue en moins de 10 heures.

    Plenty of room here. Great beach and anchorage. Firm holding.
