Navigational tips and beauty spots around the north-east coast of the Isle of Wight.
Along Peel Bank
The next major feature is Wootton Creek, to the east of which is Fishbourne, served by the car ferry from Portsmouth. There is a bank of shingle to the east of the entrance and you can stay to seaward of it by lining up the first starboard channel marker with the red beacon marking Wootton Rocks to the west of the entrance. The rocks, about 300m offshore, are halfway between the shore and the Royal Victoria Yacht Club’s starting platform so stay 400m offshore, closer to the platform, to clear them, or stay seaward of a transit between Old Castle Point and the outer Channel marker – not the cardinal.
