Hurst Castle.

Its not set yet if the checkpoint will be at the castle or next to the lighthouse.

If you have made it in through the Narrows, you will have a stretch of water here that will probably be directly into the wind - although this harbour is sheltered.

Paddles or Oars may be the order of business here.

But its your Call.

However...

No powered craft allowed - although there is a powered ferry from the castle to Keyhaven every 20 minutes. Keyhaven has a pub and I believe, some shops for supplies.

This pic of the castle was taken in the same 30 knot SW wind as the photos taken of the narrows. Key haven harbour is sheltered.

..and on another day, travelling up from Keyhaven.

A slipway that we were allowed to use.

They dont want anyone getting in the way of the ferry terminal.
