The Solent is one of the most famous sailing areas in the world. It lies between the shores of Hampshire to the North and the Isle of Wight to the South - a little under 30 miles. This book tells of the creation of The Solent, its natural environment and development as a waterway, its naval and military development, its shores, havens and harbours, its yachting history and photography and The Solent as it is today.
